Man burying daughter finds newborn alive in grave in northern India


LUCKNOW: A man digging a grave in northern India last week found a newborn girl buried alive — the latest case to shine a spotlight on female infanticide in the country. Hitesh Sirohi had gone to bury his own daughter, who died a few minutes after birth on Wednesday, when his spade hit an earthen pot, police in Uttar Pradesh state said. “When he noticed a newborn girl inside it, he immediately rescued her and dialed… for help.”
