A man allegedly slashed the neck and fingers of his 6-month-old baby girl in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh on Sunday. Doctors treating the baby told news agency ANI that her speech may be severely impaired as her vocal cord has been cut.
The police have arrested the accused Jahid.
Jahid, in his twenties, reportedly had a fight with his wife on Saturday night. He accused his wife of having an extra-marital affair with a man in the neighbourhood.
During interrogation, Jahid told the police that he overheard neighbours gossip about his wife saying he was not the father of the baby.
When he confronted his wife on the issue, she allegedly did not reply to his questions. In a fit of rage, he attacked the baby and his wife with a kitchen knife, police said.
While the baby was severely injured in the neck and fingers, the wife suffered minor cuts on her arm.
Preliminary investigation about the accused revealed that he was allegedly a drug addict.
