A woman who had stabbed her newborn child to death within hours of delivery and hid the body in a refrigerator was taken into custody by Sapugaskanda police today.
 

It is alleged that the woman who complained of a stomachache had gone to the toilet and had delivered the child there. When her husband noticed the blood stains in the refrigerator he had opened it to find a female infant in it and had informed the police about it.
 

Mother and child were admitted to Ragama hospital where the child was pronounced dead.
 

The 37 year old woman is a mother of two children and her husband a trishaw driver.

    Ooh, these are not due to 'Puerperal psychosis', but most of the harassment happening in our country due to Alcohol usage of men.

    Rasika , this mother is not a mother , how many childless parents are there to day in this world , very sad to hear this case.

    Wasantha Wednesday, 06 October 2010 01:25 PM

    Whatever the reason, this is uncivilized. As Shanthi stated how many mothers are suffering without children?. If she had been able to hide her pregnancy even from her husband, she could have given the child for adoption. At last poor infant paid the penalty for others inhumanity.

    values from top to bottom.

    Legalize abortion ,but should be regulated. Introduce the pill,
    and birth control more effectively

    Interesting point Nizam. but puerperal psychosis start developing AFTER child birth and it can take days, months or even years to become severe enough be fatal. but i could be wrong of course:)

    As she has delivered the baby on her own, possibility she lost a mind in the process that led her to this crime.

    No Bright Future for this poor child may be the mother doesn't have faith in the system to provide the child with quality education, health care and welfare

    rasika Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:20 AM

    These may be creature even beyond animals

    sltk2004 Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:34 AM

    Hard to believe - can a women hide the pregnancy so well?

    Hasiya Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:40 AM

    OMG

    A M M Nizam Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:42 AM

    Perhaps this may be due to a mental illness called “Puerperal psychosis” This can happen to anyone and medically with no obvious reason why it should happen. So, coming to a conclusion is too early.

    Even animals do care their cubs more than human.

    spark Wednesday, 06 October 2010 10:57 AM

    This is nothing in a country where yesterdays patriots and war heros are made todays traitors and jail birds.

    Abortion: The old fashioned way

    aaaaaaaaaaaa Wednesday, 06 October 2010 11:02 AM

    MAY BE SHE WAS RAPED BY THE FAMOUS RAPE POLITICIAN and wanted to kill the child....which is good as we dont want any off spring from this politician.

    Fayad Wednesday, 06 October 2010 11:05 AM

    Nizam i absolutely agree with you.
    we should not come to conclusion so soon, how can we comment without knowing the truth.
