Burnt To Death For Giving Birth To Girls

Salora village, Maharashtra, October 19, 2007.

What initially was reported to be a case of self-immolation, later turned out to be cold-blooded murder. Sunita Rathod (30) from Salora village, Maharashtra, died of severe burns early on Thursday.  The incident was allegedly a fallout of frequent altercations between the couple over the issue of birth of girls—and no male child.  Report here.
