Deogarh: A seven-month-old tribal girl was burnt to death allegedly by her father at Bijaynagar village in Orissa, police said on Sunday.

The infant's parents Silai Haiburu and Sukrumuni Haiburu picked up a quarrel in an inebriated state last night during which the child's father threw her into the earthern oven, the police quoted the mother as having said.

Silai, however, refuted the allegation and claimed that the child had inadvertently crawled into the oven and could not be rescued.

The tribal couple have two sons and three daughters besides the victim, who was youngest of all.
