Father kills 15-day old infant for being female

Police have arrested a man for killing his 15-day old daughter by drowning her in a pond in Shatkhira's Shyamnagar.

Ashraful Islam, the infant's father, killed his child on Thursday at Ichhakur village because he had wanted a son, police said.

Shyamnagar police Officer-in-Charge Syed Abdul Mannan said Ashraful had confessed to the murder.

"His first child is a daughter and this time he wanted a boy," the OC said.

"He was furious when his second child was born a girl. So, he threw the infant in a pond and killed her on Thursday."

Locals contacted police after seeing the infant's body floating in the water.

OC Mannan said they detained the infant's father Ashraful as a suspect, who later confessed to killing his child.
