31 January, 2015, Madhya Pradesh

An 11-year-old Yasmeen on died, two days after the police say she set herself on fire. It is reported that  she was thrashed and threatened by a policeman Jaroliya  in Madhya Pradesh, for riding his bicycle without permission.  The police say she was scared and ashamed because Jaroliya had threatened to get her family jailed. The doctors at Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital tried hard to save Yasmeen, who had 100% burn injuries, but could not.

The police are waiting for the autopsy report before initiating criminal proceedings. Jaroliya and his family members were untraceable and their house was found to be locked, he said.

However even though this is the police’s version of the story, the girl’s family says it is murder. Rehana Bi, Yasmeen’s mother, however has alleged that it was Jaroliya who set her daughter on fire.

70 #Indian Villages Where No #Girl Child Survived for the Last Several Years

70 villages in the State of Haryana have had no girls who have lived past the age of 6 years for the past several years. They are either aborted as fetuses or killed sometime after birth since the child sex ratio accounts for children from birth to the age of six years. Many of these villages belong to Mahendergarh district, where the child sex ratio (0-6 years) is just 762 girls against 1,000 boys. Some of the villages have a sex ratio of just 500 or even less than that.

Even though there is sex selection, the 2011 census indicates that it is not feticide but infanticide that accounts for the low child sex ratio.  Most girls are killed after birth.
