Berhampur, Odisha, September 24, 201

Binodini had married Narayan around three years ago. The couple has a two-year-old daughter.  Around three weeks ago, Binodini had given birth to their second child, another girl.  The birth of another daughter upset Narayan so much that he first beat up his wife and then tried to slash her throat with a knife.  Binodini is in the hospital, and her condition is said to be stable now.  Her husband has fled and the police is on his lookout.   Not long ago another family, in the same district had tried to sell of their daughter, and a woman had died after her in-laws forced her to undergo an abortion when they discovered she was carrying a girl.Full report here.
