Mianwali father wishing for a son shoots newborn daughter

MIANWALI: A cold-hearted man in Mianwali, Punjab, who wanted to have a son, brutally killed his seven-day-old daughter by shooting her, Geo News reported on Monday, citing the police.

Per the report, the tragic incident happened in the Noor Pura neighbourhood of Mianwali, where the father killed the infant by opening fire on her just because she was a girl.

The police said that the man, who wanted a son, fled after committing the crime. A first information report (FIR) of the incident was filed by the deceased child’s maternal grandfather.

Commenting on the incident, the National Commission on Status of Women’s (NCSW) Chairperson Nilofar Bakhtiar said that the sole purpose of killing the child was because of her gender, adding that the law enforcement authorities will leave no stoned unturned to catch the culprit.

“The protection of human rights, especially women’s rights, is very important in our country,” Bakhtiar said.
