In an attempt to determine the gender of the baby, an Indian man slashed open his pregnant wife’s belly using a sickle, killing the fetus and leaving her severely wounded, on Saturday.

“He attacked her with a sickle and ripped her stomach saying that he wanted to check the gender of the unborn child” explained her brother to Thomson Reuters.

According to Uttar Pradesh police and relatives, the woman is in a New Delhi hospital in the Intensive Care Unit following the attack and her husband has been taken into custody.
