Police Arrest 35Years Old Father Of Newborn Baby Girl Found Buried Alive (Pics)
Police arrested her father Ramesh Chandra for attempted manslaughter. Many Indian parents consider daughters to be a burden because of the huge dowries still frequently required for marriage, while sons are expected to support them in their old age.
He said Chandra under questioning had admitted burying the baby, saying he was too poor to raise a daughter.
The couple already have two daughters and a son and had aborted two earlier pregnancies, the officer said.
