Mother threw her infant child from the hospital building!
Earlier this morning, it came into notice that a mother named Shanti Devi threw her ill infant from the 4th floor of the King George’s Medical University building. According to reports, the 3-months-old baby was ill since birth and was admitted in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit from 26th May 2019. The mother is said to be of age 27.
According to the hospital’s spokesperson Dr. Sandip Tiwari, the child was suffering from jaundice since its birth and was being treated well. The infant was in his recovering stage but the mother was stressed on his constant illness. The infant weighed just one kilogram at the time of his birth and was preterm.
The police investigating the matter!
Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Vikas Chandra Tripathi stated, “The woman was rigorously quizzed as there were multiple contradictions in her statement. Moreover, she had been spotted carrying the child in her lap at around 5 am in the CCTV footage inside the trauma center building. She later confessed to having thrown the child from the window of the neonatal intensive care unit on the 4th floor as she was deeply troubled with his suffering.”
Later, Shanti Devi’s husband Rajan Singh filed a complaint against her and she was then arrested for murder and concealment. The police have now sent the infant’s body for post-mortem.
People have mixed opinions on the incident, some are calling it postpartum anxiety of the mother while many are calling it an intentional work. Whatever it was, it should not have happened. May God keep everyone safe and far from evil.
