Husband rips open pregnant wife’s stomach to find out baby’s gender in India.
I don’t know if this is the newest way surgeons use to determine the sex of unborn babies.
A father of five daughters in Uttar Pradesh’s Budaun has allegedly ripped open the stomach of his pregnant wife on Saturday evening, to find out if she was going to give birth to a son this time.
Pannalal slit the stomach of his wife, aged around 35, with a sharp-edged weapon in the Nekpur locality under the Civil Lines police station area, injuring her seriously, SP (City) Pravin Singh Chauhan said.
Such an act is very gross and should be outrightly condemned for causing harm on a human.
“The man, identified as Pannalal, has slit the stomach of his wife, 35, with a sharp-edged weapon in the Nekpur locality under the Civil Lines police station area,” Pravin Singh Chauhan, senior police official (City), was quoted as saying.
The woman is said to be six to seven months pregnant.
An FIR has been lodged and the husband has been arrested, the SP said, adding that the reasons behind the crime is being looked into.
The family of the woman, who was rushed to a Bareilly hospital in a serious condition, alleged that Pannalal wanted a son and committed the crime to know if it was male or female foetus.
