According to Witnesses

"She was thrown in the garbage dump outside the village for dogs that ate her. Her only fault - she was the fourth girl born in a poor family," said Harshinder Kaur, pediatric doctor here, recalling the first time she witnessed discrimination against female infants in Punjab's rural side. (Hindu- April 16, 2013)

"Earlier this year in the southern India state of Andhra Pradesh, farmer Ram Kumar made a shocking discovery. Sticking out of the earth was a tiny human hand. Barely audible, were the cries of a newborn baby. There was a girl wrapped in a cloth and buried deep in the ground", said Ram Kumar.
