In a shocker, a one-and-a-half-year-old girl was seriously injured after allegedly being thrown from the top of a building by her father who has been arrested, police said Thursday.
Superintendent of Police YS Ravikumar said the man Ramesh had been torturing the baby after birth and so he tried to kill her as he wished for a boy.
He also had allegedly inflicted burn injuries on the baby. His wife had not mustered courage to protest the torture till he dropped the infant from a building Thursday, police said.
The baby has been admitted to a hospital and her condition is stated to be serious, police said.
After the locals informed police, he was arrested on the charge of battering his daughter and a local court remanded him to judicial custody, sources added.
