I’m sure there was no other option….
A six-month pregnant woman was brutally beaten on her stomach by her husband and parents in-law with the help of a rod to deliberately kill the foetus growing inside her.
The woman lost her child after she was tortured mercilessly on the advice of the the family’s religious teacher who allegedly told her husband and in-laws that she was carrying a girl child in her womb, according to reports in the Indian media.
This was the woman’s fifth pregnancy and she had already been forced to terminate two pregnancies in the past. The couple have two girls.
A case has been filed against the husband and her in-laws.
