Baby Neha Afreen, allegedly battered by her father for being born a girl, passed away on Wednesday in a hospital here.
The baby suffered a heart attack at 10.40am and despite all efforts she passed away at 11am, the doctors at Vani Vilas hospital said.

The summary census figures for India show that the female population of India is smaller than the male population by 3,72,55,074. About 3% of the population “disappears” at some point in their life, and often even before life begins for them. The case of Afreen is just one of about 4 crores!
