A report by Daily Mail reveals that a 25-year old mother was locked in a bathroom for three years and banned from seeing her child all because she gave birth to a baby girl.

The woman wept uncontrollably when her daughter couldn’t recognise her as she had overgrown nails, torn clothes and could not open her eyes due to the sunlight.

Police chief Seema Kumari said: “The woman could barely open her eyes in the sunlight, as she had survived in darkness and dim light, closeted in the small space. The woman revealed that she was thrown into the bathroom and locked there. She was not allowed to see her child, and given leftover food irregularly. It was as if her in-laws were seeking revenge for not bringing ample dowry and for giving birth to a girl child.”

The Indian government has outlawed dowry-giving  since 1981, but many still continue with the norm, hence the preference for male over female children

Ms Kumari said: ‘She was never allowed to go meet her parents. When her relatives visited Darbhanga to meet her, they were dissuaded or shooed away. She was also barred from interacting with anybody from outside. She immediately asked for her three-year-old daughter and wept inconsolably when the child could not recognise her.’

Husband of the victim Prabhat Kumar Singh has been arrested just as his parents Dhirendra Singh and Indra Devi will also be questions as the victims family have launched a legal case against them.
