An unemployed man allegedly thrashed his pregnant wife and accidentally killed their unborn baby in Jahangirpuri about a week ago. Police said the woman, who contacted them only on Friday, has also complained of dowry harassment.

An officer said 20-year-old Kavita was two-and-a-half month pregnant. She got married just five months ago and lives along with her husband and mother-in-law in Block A. Her husband Pradeep picked up a fight with her over dowry last week and thrashed her, she told the police.

“According to Kavita, Pradeep was so enraged that he forgot she was pregnant. Kavita went to a hospital where doctors confirmed that the unborn child had died due to the thrashing,” said an officer.

The husband is absconding.
