Hyderabad: A man allegedly killed his eight-month-old daughter by throwing her into a well because he wanted a male child, police said. The incident took place at Gandipet village on the outskirts of the city.
E Ramulu, a labourer, made his wife drink toddy with him on Tuesday night. After she slept, he picked up the baby girl and threw her into a well in the nearby field and then returned to his bed, police said.
In the morning, Ramulu played innocent and asked his wife about the baby and started a search. But the villagers suspected that something was fishy, and questioned him.
