The incident took place on December 27 when Anitadevi Dimple Bind, who hails from Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh, allegedly strangled her daughter who was born at around 4 pm on the same day, inspector J J Dabhi of Umbergaon police said.

The matter came to light after the woman's husband approached the on-duty doctor at around 8 pm saying his wife was finding it difficult to breastfeed the infant, who weighed 2.7 kg, he added.

On examination, the doctor found that the infant had died, following which a post-mortem was conducted at a hospital in Surat, the official said.
