In a shocking incident, a Bangladeshi woman allegedly killed the child of her tenant by throwing him against the floor after she got irritated by the toddler’s cries.

The toddler, Hafizur Sheikh, was on Thursday crying in a room of his house when an angry Nupur Begum came in and threw him on the floor, hurting his head and chest, a police official quoted the child’s family as saying.

The boy was rushed to the hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

Hafizur’s father is a rickshaw-puller and the family used to live in a rented room in south central Barishal in a house owned by Nupur’s husband.

The woman has been on the run since the incident and authorities are trying to catch her, quoted the police official as saying.
