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.

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.
