A few days back, 26-year-old Shahina, a native of Badiyadukka in Kasargod district in Kerala, killed her newborn by strangulating the baby with an earphone cable.
According to the police, she was “disappointed to have a baby soon after the first delivery”. Her first son was born only a few months back.
Her husband had no idea that she had been carrying. According to the police, he came to know about it only after the baby was murdered. Shahina was charged with murder and has been sent to jail.
On April 28, 2019, 15-month-old Adhisha, the only child of Athira and Sharon in Alappuzha, was found dead in the bedroom. According to the police, Athira sought the help of neighbours to take the baby to the hospital as she was found lying unconscious.
