A village panchayat in Haryana has decided to socially boycott families that indulge in female foeticide in an effort to curb the menace.

Bahadurgarh village head Sushil Kumar said the panchayat has decided that families that carry out female foeticide will face social boycott. The decision has been taken to improve the deteriorating sex ratio.

The decision would be publicised at major spots in the village, he said.

The panchayat has also announced a reward of Rs 11,000 for those who give information about female foeticide in the village, Kumar said.

Also, sterilisation after the birth of two daughters will be felicitated by the village.
