On Thursday the couple was arrested and booked under section 302 for strangling their newborn baby girl. The accused Mother has been identified as Anju Rawat and Father Shailendra Rawat.
A Police official said that Anju gave birth to a baby girl four days ago in Morena district hospital. The infant was admitted to a Special newborn care unit. On Wednesday the mother took the baby out of the ward to feed her. But when she didn't return after an hour the nurse called her husband. But he said that they would not return as the girl had died. Sensing something wrong the Doctor in-charge Anshul Tomar informed the Police. He also sent the girl’s body for the Postmortem.
The Postmortem report suggested strangulation as the cause of death. The police are interrogating the couple to know the reason behind this. The police also blamed the negligence of the hospital staff and questioned the authorities for allowing the woman to feed the baby outside when there was a feeding room inside the hospital ward.
