Hyderabad: Infant flung to ground by mother

Hyderabad: A woman threw her one-month-old infant to the ground in a fit of rage after she was involved in a brawl with her husband at Hyderabad’s Mehdipatnam area on Monday.

In a video footage, the incident took place when the couple had an argument and the woman could be seen shouting at a man, apparently at her husband. As the man tried to evade her, the woman continued ranting and tried to hand over the baby to him.

When the man refused to hold the child, the woman, in a fit of rage, flung the infant to the ground. Later, locals and traffic police intervened and stopped the couple from quarrelling. A policeman could later be seen holding the child in the video.

According to an inspector of Humayun Nagar police station, the police had got the information through the traffic personnel that a couple was in an inebriated state and is arguing on the road. He further confirmed that the mother had thrown her child to the ground.

“Immediately we reached the spot and handed over the infant to the family later. We have asked them to come to Barosa centre for counselling,” the inspector added. He also said that there was a dispute between the couple.
