Mumbai: A one-and-half month old baby girl
died on Tuesday after her mother flung her through a window of a
civic-run hospital in Parel area here.
According to hospital officials, 26-year-old Deepika
Parmar, who gave birth to twins at a private hospital, had
come to KEM hospital on October 20 along with her husband
Manish, a tailor by profession. She threw one of the babies
from the ground floor window early morning, they said.

"We were happy with the twins. We did not have any
problem with the baby girl," an emotionally perturbed Manish
said.

"It has been ascertained from CCTV footage that the woman
flung her baby girl through the window. This is really
depressing...don`t know what made the lady take such a drastic
step. It is best known to her," KEM Dean Sanjay Oak said.
The mother initially said her girl was missing, but
during interrogation she admitted to have thrown the baby,
hospital authorities said.

"Once the baby was discovered, she was taken to operation
theatre but due to low temperature and head injuries she
couldn`t survive," Oak said.

A complaint has been registered with Bhoiwada Police in
this connection.
