Ahmedabad: The Crime Branch of Ahmedabad Police on Sunday arrested a 23-year-old woman for allegedly murdering her child born out of an extramarital relationship, and dumping the body in a garbage van.

According to the police, on February 14, the body of a newborn girl was found wrapped in a plastic bag in a garbage van in Kochrab village in Ahmedabad district.  The diver of the garbage van alerted the police, following which a case was registered and an investigation was taken up.

The police, during the investigation, tracked the route taken by the garbage van and zeroed in on a 23-year-old woman, identified as Shivani Srivastava. The police found some medical documents related to pregnancy in her house. The police took her into custody, and on interrogation, she confessed to having killed her newborn daughter.

Srivastava, who hails from Uttar Pradesh’s Mainpuri, told the police that she came to Ahmedabad with her husband around six months ago. In Ahmedabad, she got into an extramarital relationship. She became pregnant from her illicit relationship, according to a report by The Indian Express.

“On February 13 night, the woman had labour pain following which she gave birth to a girl at her home when her husband was at work. Fearing that her husband would find out, she strangulated the child and packed the body in a plastic bag. Then next morning, she threw the plastic bag in the garbage collection van,” the report quoted a senior police officer as saying.

The arrestee has been charged under relevant sections and further inquiries are underway.

in another incident, a 13-year-old girl was allegedly murdered by her 30-year-old relative in Dombivali in Maharashtra’s Thane district.

 Police said the accused, identified as Mayuresh Saplinga, as well as the now-deceased girl’s parents and another relative reside in the same house. Saplinga assaulted the minor girl over some domestic dispute that is being probed, they added.
