Dikshit said the incidents of female foeticide are becoming more common in affluent sections of society. 

"In one of the neighbouring states, the families are forced to bring their daughters-in-law from far-off states and even from other countries as the sex ratio has touched the lowest," said Dikshit after inaugurating an Integrated Skill Training Centre for girls at Neb Sarai.
