Techie throws newborn daughter into well

india Updated: Mar 14, 2009 13:05 IST

Annoyed that he could not spend "quality time" with his wife, a software engineer allegedly killed his newborn daughter by throwing her into a 30 ft deep well.

Niranjan Kumar (28), an employee of a Bangalore-based IT firm, was today arrested after he threw his four-day-old daughter into a 30 ft deep well last night, police said.

His wife had become pregnant soon after their marriage a year ago and Kumar had tried to persuade her to undergo an
abortion, police said.

Kumar returned to Bangalore after leaving his pregnant wife with her parents in Chennai.

After the baby was born four days ago, Kumar, who had come here to see her, was "upset" and threw it into a well in
the house late last night, police said.
