India | Baby Girl Buried Alive "to Protect Family's Children From Illness"

NOTE: she survived
Quote:
  • Father and uncle charged on suspicion of attempted murder
  • 'Guru said burial would ward off bad luck for family,' pair claim
  • 'Who would want to kill her own child?' pleads mother
  • Local reporter has seen dozens of similar cases, including three in the past month

The father of a six-week-old baby girl has been arrested, along with the child's uncle, on suspicion of attempted murder after allegedly trying to bury her alive in the belief it would protect his other children from illness.
A worker at a burial ground in Pilkhuwa, 100km south-west of New Delhi, alerted police after he saw two men attempting to bury baby Radhika in a shallow grave.
Dinesh Kumar, the parent, and his brother claim a local guru instructed them to carry out the shocking act as a means off warding off further bad luck after the family lost another child to an incurable disease last year.
Radhika, now two months old, is in hospital recovering from dehydration and malnutrition.
In what could be the third such case in the last month, a local journalist has blamed poverty and illiteracy for the persistence of superstitions.
Radhika's mother Bharati Rani, who denies any involvement, said: 'Tell me which mother would want to kill her own child,' according to the BBC.
But graveyard caretaker Sriram Kore said: 'There, you can still see the signs,' indicating a half-dug grave.

He said he found Radhika's father and uncle digging the grave beside ritual offerings.
'They had a little bundle with them - a dead girl they said they wanted to bury. But I could see she was alive. So I called the police immediately,' Mr Kore added.

Police have so far not been able to trace the guru allegedly involved.

In India, female children are often regarded as a burden because tradition requires large dowry fees to be paid to the other family when they are married.

The country has among the highest female infant mortality rates in the world.
The ratio in the 2011 census was 914 girls for every 1,000 boys, in comparison to 950 girls for every 1,000 boys worldwide.
Local journalist Mohammad Naseem says he has covered dozens of similar stories, including three in the past month alone.

She's alive! That's good, but, where do people get these crazy ideas? Why do they always choose babies to do?

Kill the innocents! The ones who have never sinned, if you believe in that, and could not have possibly hurt anyone!

Yes, thanks to the graveyard caretaker.
I wanted to point it out in the title, but there was no more room
Just edited the OP, added a note at the start.

Why is the baby's face blurred? Are we going to recognize this infant from somewhere? I want to see it, goddamnit!
