Police File No Charges Against Father Who Tried to Strangle His Baby Girl

Vijayawada, AP, May 19, 2013

P. Arjuna tried to kill his three-day-old baby girl by throwing her on the floor and strangling her with his legs.   He had been fighting with his wife for giving birth to a daughter.  Neighbors who heard the wife screaming, rushed in and stopped him.  However the police did not arrest the man or file charges, because the man’s relatives pressurized his wife to not file a complaint.   This is often the case in India, even when baby girls get killed.  However The 50 Million Missing Campaign believes that the police ought to make an arrest and file charges regardless of whether or not the wife or family file a police complaint.
