LAHORE: A stone-hearted father threw his infant daughter into the Ravi River on Tuesday after his wife gave birth to another baby girl instead of a boy, Geo News reported.

The one-and-a-half-year old infant drowned immediately after she was thrown into the muddy waters of the river.

The perpetrator of infanticide namely, Umer, a rickshaw driver by profession, was arrested after his wife Sumera alerted the police of the horrendous crime.

According to Sumera, Umer on the pretext of a family outing brought her wife and the two daughters to the Ravi River and then he suddenly picked his one-and-a-half-year old daughter Zainab and threw her into the river.

Sumera revealed that her husband would taunt her all the time about not bearing him a son and hated his daughters, which was the sole motive behind his killing his daugher.

“I appeal to the government that my husband be given exemplary punishment,” Sumera said while speaking to Geo News.

Meanwhile, Umer was in police custody and a case had been registered against him.

Speaking from behind the bars of the lockup, Umer said he was unable to afford raising his daughters and was too depressed about it, which ultimately forced him to commit this crime.
