The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City -

New Delhi: A five-month-old child died af­ter an iron nail hit his head when his fa­ther tried to at­tack his mother with a stick. The in­ci­dent hap­pened near Ghazipur. The ac­cused fa­ther is on the run.

On Oc­to­ber 6, the ac­cused Satya­jit and his wife Deepti reached a govern­ment hos­pi­tal with the child, Tan­ishk, who had a bruise on his fore­head. The doc­tors treated him there. On Oc­to­ber 8, the cou­ple again took their child to a pri­vate hos­pi­tal, where he died while un­der­go­ing treat­ment. Doc­tors said that he died of in­ter­nal bleed­ing.

A po­lice probe later re­vealed that Satya­jit tried to hit Deepti, who was hold­ing Tan­ishk in her arms, with a stick which had nails. Satya­jit had lost his job re­cently.

DCP (East) Jas­meet Singh said a case of cul­pa­ble homi­cide has been reg­is­tered.
