Parents kill one-month-old baby girl by giving cactus milk

crime

MADURAI: In an uncanny incident, a one-month-old baby girl was murdered by her parents by feeding her cactus milk. The incident happened at Pullaneri, a rural village at Madurai in Tamil Nadu. The police have picked up the baby’s parents Vairamurugan (32) and Sowmya (22) and his father Singathevar. They gave the milk extracted from the leaves of the cactus to the baby. They later buried the body of the child next to their house.

The couple already has a two-and-a half-year-old girl. They decided to murder the baby as it was a girl again. The sudden death of the baby created a stir in the village. Suspecting that she could have murdered, it was the villagers who alerted the police. A detailed inquiry conducted exposed the incident. This is not the first instance of female infanticide reporting in Tamil Nadu. Similar incidents have been reported earlier also.
