Jaipur, March 27 (IANS) The body of a newborn girl was found in a dustbin here Tuesday, bringing to the fore the plight of the girl child in a state that suffers from a skewed sex ratio.

 

Police found the body wrapped in a piece of cloth in Shashtri Nagar area

 

"We got a call from a resident. dogs were dragging it out from the bin. It seems the body was dumped at least three days ago," a police official told IANS.

 

Rajasthan has been in the news due to increasing cases of female foeticide and infanticide.

 

Poverty, ignorance about family planning and high dowry have been reported as the possible causes for this crime.

 

According to Census 2011, Rajasthan has 883 girls in the age of 0-6 for every 1,000 boys. The child sex ratio in 2001 was 909.

 

Alarmed over the skewed sex ratio, the state government recently announced steps to curb pre-natal sex determination tests at ultrasound clinics.

 

The steps include increasing the number of health department inspection teams and equipping them with devices like hidden cameras and voice recorders.

 

The government has also announced Rs.1 lakh money to a person who complains about errant ultrasound clinics.
