First Time Father Holds Newborn He Notices Something Displeasing, Then Does The Unspeakable

Sher Alam was looking forward to having a baby. That is until he learned that his newborn was a girl and not a boy. Alam is now accused of strangling his newborn daughter in the courtyard of his home.

Alam’s wife, Shamim Bibi, reported him to authorities. She told them that he murdered her child in front of her. He then dug a grave and buried their baby in the courtyard without any remorse, the Express Tribune reports. She told authorities that he was upset that the baby was a girl, because he had wanted a son.

“Soon after I came back home with the baby girl, my husband Sher Alam became furious, snatched her from my hands and strangled her to death,” Bibi’s complaint said.

Officials found the baby where she said it was and police said that they arrested Alam. There has been a recent pattern in Pakistani of fathers devaluing the lives of their daughters.

Pakistani police recently arrested a middle aged man who is accused of killing his teenage daughter. He reportedly decided to kill her after he and his daughter were both against her marrying a man who had a bad reputation. Her brother reported his father Akhtar Manzur for the crime.
