Indian man pours acid on wife for giving birth to a girl

A man poured acid on his sleeping wife because she gave birth to a baby girl and he wanted a boy. They have been married for eight years and have two daughters.

Farah, 25, was severely burned in the alleged attack by Siraj, 32. The attack happened in the town of Moradabad near New Delhi on Monday, the Daily Mail reports.

Siraj was said to have accused his wife of failing to fulfil his demand for a dowry and not delivering him a male child. You know like it’s the wife’s fault that she gave birth to a girl, right? Wrong.

He is now wanted for voluntarily causing grievous bodily harm using acid and is the subject of a police manhunt.

Farah was rushed to the district hospital after the cowardly attack in a serious condition with burns to her face, hands, and abdomen.

According to the victim, her husband’s family began to give her a hard time after she gave birth to her first daughter and later escalated to beating her.

“After the birth of the first girl, my in-laws started to target me as if I deliberately delivered a baby girl,’

The harassment kept intensifying as time passed by. For the past one year, things had become really bad.”

When I didn’t oblige them, they started to beat me up. It come to a head when my second daughter was born

I was trying to live with the daily dose of torture thinking about the wellbeing of my daughters. I was wondering if I part ways from Siraj who would provide for my two daughters and myself.

But I could never imagine that he would go to the extent of pouring acid on me. I won’t forgive him for this ever.”
