In a heartbreaking incident in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh district, a 25-year-old mother of a six-month-old daughter has allegedly beaten her baby to death after her husband refused to buy new clothes for Holi.
According to the police, the accused Pinky Sharma and her husband Rahul Sharma had an argument when Rahul refused to go to the market for buying clothes as he was not feeling well. As a result, the mother took out her anger on her 6-months-old daughter Soni by thrashing her badly.
The horrific beating led to the baby’s death.
After the incident, the husband, Rahul Sharma lodged a complaint against his wife for killing their baby. The police registered a case against Pinky under section 302 (murder) of IPC and arrested her.
As per sources, station in-charge Naresh Kumar Singh shared that the mother told police that she did not kill her daughter intentionally.
While sharing what Pinky shared with the police, he further added:
“She was frustrated with domestic issues and constant arguments with her husband and took out her frustration on her daughter, without realizing that the baby would die.”
It is heartbreaking to see how a 6-month-old baby has to pay the price of her parents’ argument. As we pray for her soul, we wonder how a mother could take her rage out on a helpless & innocent baby?
