In a competitive world, where India is more into the era of scientific technology, research & development and several other factors lifting the nation’s morale, some people of this nation still believe in superstitious beliefs like ‘good luck’, ‘bad luck’, a practice that was followed since ancient times.
In a shocking incident, a woman murdered her 7-month old baby girl thinking that she brought ‘bad luck’ to the family. The accused identified as the 27-year-old Adiba from Delhi. The incident happened on August 20, 2018. The mother strongly believed that her daughter was the main reason for all the medical and financial issues of her family.
After the incident, she tried to escape from the crime by making it look like an ‘accidental drowning’ but there was never a chance for her to make it. When she carried the baby to the nearby Moolchand hospital, hospital authorities informed the cops about the arrival and the baby’s condition.
On investigation, the police came to know about the marks on the baby’s neck and had guessed that the baby was not accidentally drowned. After the deceased was sent for post-mortem to AIIMS, the reports added that the baby passed away due to strangulation.
With no option left, the mother, later, confessed to murdering her daughter. She broke down and blamed her baby for all the bad luck of her family and said that the only way she knew was to finish off her so that her family would stop suffering.
So, she strangled the baby with a dupatta when no one else was home and then put her in water to make it look like an accidental drowning. The woman has been arrested and put behind the bars for her serious crime. The dupatta that used to kill the baby was discovered.
What’s really wrong with people these days? Why would they strongly believe in such stupid things? These kinds of people should change their attitude and shouldn’t blame others for their misfortunes. Just imagine, how can a 7-month-old baby (girl or boy) possibly bring someone bad luck to the family?
