A 19-year-old woman has been booked by the Sinhagad Road police in Pune for allegedly killing a newborn by throwing her out of a hospital window.
According to the FIR, the accused, who resides in a hostel in Narhe, is unmarried and conceived the child following a relationship.

On being alerted, a team from the Sinhagad Road police station rushed to the spot and initiated an investigation. The police said that since the accused was admitted to the hospital for treatment, she was not arrested right away.
The police have booked the accused under Indian Penal Code section 315 (act done with intent to prevent child being born alive or to cause it to die after birth).
