Man Finds Newborn Alive In A Grave As He Buries His Daughter

Hitesh Sirohi had been digging a grave to bury his own daughter, who died a few minutes after birth, when he found an earthen pot with a newborn girl inside it. The baby girl was wrapped in a cloth and crying when Sirohi found her, and he immediately rescued her and dialed for help. The case of the newborn baby girl being found buried has shone a light on female infanticide in India. Female infanticide is widespread in the country because of parents preferring sons (who are viewed as investments and heirs) instead of daughters (seen as a liability). A local politician is paying for the newborn’s hospital bills,  as she is now receiving medical care.
