In a shocking case, a young mother allegedly murdered her six-month-old daughter after a fight with her husband in Aligarh.
According to a report, the incident took place in Aligarh’s Rampur village on Sunday.
The accused has been identified as one Pinky Sharma.
The 25-year-old used to live with her husband Rahul Sharma along with their two children in Rampur.
Apart from the infant daughter, the couple also has a three-year-old son.
Rahul Sharma used to work as a worker at a local factory.
On the fateful day, the couple had a bitter fight over Holi shopping.
Cash-strapped, Sharma had refused to buy new clothes for the family.
Pinky felt angry as she wanted to celebrate the festival in grand manner.
However, soon after the tiff, Rahul walked out of the house.
She allegedly vented her anger on her infant daughter, Soni, and thrashed her so badly that the baby died.
After Rahul returned to the home, he saw Pinky crying in a corner.
He noticed the lifeless baby and immediately raised an alarm. The neighbours called the police.
The cops have filed a case against the woman under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code.
Moreover, after the arrest, Pinky told about her unhappy marriage.
According to the police, tormented over constant tussle with husband, Pinky said that she didn’t kill her baby ‘intentionally.’
She felt upset over constant arguments with her husband and vented her frustration on her daughter, the police said.
