A piece of shocking news has come to light from Madhya Pradesh where a mother allegedly hanged herself at Katni town. It was a heart-wrenching incident as a newborn child was also found alive and attached to the umbilical cord of the woman, police said.
The woman has been identified as Laxmi Thakur, who was found hanging from the roof of a cowshed at her house on Thursday morning. Reportedly, she has given birth to a child while committing suicide.
The police were informed by Laxmi’s husband Santosh, a farmer who saw his wife hanging on the roof.
As per the reports of NDTV, the police sub-inspector Kavita Sahni told that when she reached the spot, Laxmi was dead. Soon, she realised that something was under her sari and then, she took the woman and found that a baby was dangling between her legs, attached to the umbilical cord.
Later, a gynaecologist was called to cut the umbilical cord so as to release the baby boy from his dead mother’s body.
The baby was rushed to the district hospital. However, his condition was fine, Ms Sahni told PTI.
The reason behind the suicide of the woman was reported that she was fed up with the poverty in which she lived with her husband and along with her children.
However, this is the fifth child that she has given the birth.
