A woman has allegedly murdered her own 22-day-old newborn in Karachi. After investigation, she confessed to the police, reports ARY News.

According to the police, she was arrested from Liaquatabad, Karachi. They also recovered the weapon used to murder the baby girl. The body of the infant was also found in the house.

According to the mother’s initial statement, she covered up the incident with a robbery. She also fainted when the police reached the crime scene. She further added that a boy barged into the house from the roof and pushed her, after which she hit her head on the refrigerator and passed out.


She added that after gaining consciousness she found her daughter with her throat slit.

The mother later confessed that she murdered her newborn because the baby’s crying interrupted her and her husband’s sleep, which caused fights and issues between the couple.

The father of the baby has filed a case against his wife under section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
