Patna, India: A woman in India threw out her newborn baby into the river after differences with her hubby over petty issue.
Authorities said Jitendra Rai, a resident of Patna in eastern Indian state of Bihar, asked his wife Neetu Devi to cook food on Friday.
Subsequently, she asked her husband to take care of their six-month-old son but the latter refused leading to minor quarrels between them.
In a fit of rage, the woman walked up to the bank of river Ganga which flows by her village and threw out her baby into the river.
Soon after getting information, the family members rushed to the spot but by then the baby had already died.
The police have arrested the woman and further investigation is on.
“The woman threw out the baby into the river after minor differences with her husband. We have arrested the woman and sent her to jail,” a local police official Sandeep Kumar Singh told the media on Saturday.
