In a disturbing incident from Ahmedabad, Gujarat, a father identified as Ansar Ahmad Ansari, who works as a scrap dealer, has been accused of killing his five-month-old daughter by strangling her inside his auto-rickshaw on Wednesday, February 28. Ansari allegedly committed this act as he was discontented with having a girl child and desired a son instead.

As per reports, the tragic event occurred when Ansar Ahmad Ansari was accompanying his wife to the hospital for her stomach pain check-up. While his wife was undergoing a sonography test, their infant daughter began crying inside the auto-rickshaw. Overwhelmed by stress from his business setbacks and a brain ailment, Ansari lost control of his temper and tragically choked the child to death.

After realizing what he had done, Ansar Ahmad Ansari attempted to revive his daughter by sprinkling water on her face, but his efforts were in vain. He then transported her to a nearby area known as Vora’s Roza. His suspicious behavior caught the attention of some individuals who promptly alerted the police. Ansari and the child were taken to Shardaben Hospital, where the child was pronounced dead upon arrival. Subsequently, Ansari was arrested by the police and charged with murder.

In December of last year, a disturbing incident unfolded in the Valsad district of Gujarat, where a man, identified as Vijay Pandey (45), allegedly committed a heinous act.

Pandey purportedly pushed his wife and 11-year-old daughter into a river before attempting to take his own life by jumping in as well. Fortunately, local residents intervened and rescued him from a pillar under a bridge over the Varoli river near Humran village on Wednesday afternoon. Upon interrogation, Pandey confessed to pushing his wife, who suffered from epilepsy, and his mentally ill daughter to their deaths.
