In a disturbing incident caught on CCTV, a woman in Bengaluru reportedly threw her 4-year-old mentally challenged daughter from 4th floor of her building. The horrific incident was reported from Bengaluru’s SR Nagar and occurred earlier on Thursday.

According to a Telangana Today report, the accused mother had earlier tried to abandon her daughter at a railway station.

The Facts of the Matter

Any person born with disability – either physical or mental, or both – requires certain kind of attention from their guardians, family, and friends. However, what’s more important is they are accepted and acknowledged by their parents.
