Mumbai: A 31-year-old woman, Manali Mehta, with speech and hearing impairment, accused of throwing her newborn daughter to her death from the 14th floor of their Mulund building in 2023, was granted bail by a sessions court on Monday.
Mehta, arrested on March 12, 2024, was described by her advocate Vishhal Saxxenaa as mentally unfit and suffering from acute depression following the loss of her firstborn child and her father. The lawyer argued that there were no eyewitnesses to the incident, as reported by TOI.
The bail plea highlighted Mehta's alleged psychotic features and claimed that, even if she committed the offence, her mental state rendered her incapable of understanding the act's nature, entitling her to protection under the IPC. The plea emphasized her lack of criminal history.
In an unrelated incident, a 46-year-old woman Rekha Solanki strangled her 11-year-old daughter to death and attempted suicide in February. After the incident, the woman was undergoing treatment at a hospital. Reportedly, the body was sent for post-mortem.
As per news agency ANI, the case was registered under sections 302 and 309 of IPC against the woman. Authorities swiftly responded to the incident reported in the Dindoshi police station jurisdiction. The local police were alerted and promptly arrived at the scene where they found a body. The deceased individual was immediately transferred for post-mortem examination. Kasturba Police confirmed that a case was filed under sections 302 and 309 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the woman involved.
