New Born Girl Found Killed in A Canal

Jaipur, Rajasthan, January 25, 2011

The police found the body of a newborn girl, killed and dumped in a canal near Naugama, a small village in Banswara district.  Earlier families used to practice female foeticide, but after the government announced monetary incentives for couples to have girls,  families now go to the hospitals with an eye on the money offered.  However, soon after leaving the hospital, the newborn girls “disappear”. In some cases they are killed while in others the families just throw them away. Read the report here
