On Saturday night, a father identified as Pannalal of four daughters attacked his wife identified as Anita Devi to confirm the gender of the child she was currently carrying in India to know if it is a boy.
Anita’s family told investigators that the husband attacked and cut open her stomach to “know the gender” of the child.
Though the baby in the womb was unhurt, Anita’s condition deteriorated due to severe damage to her insides and excessive bleeding.
According to the man he did not intentionally attack his wife:
“I have five daughters, one of my sons is dead. I know that children are the gift of God. Now whatever is to happen, will happen.”
Police officials said the husband has been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.
