The baby born prematurely was thrown into the nearby Ubhal Wah canal by the killer father-in-law.

Meanwhile, reports also suggest hit men had been dispatched to Karachi to kill the absconding mother of Taslim who had fled the village.

In Islamabad, President Asif Ali Zardari reacted sharply to the report of killing of the girl and asked lady MNA Nafeesa Shah to investigate the shocking event and submit him a report.

President's spokesman Farhatullah Babar said that he was greatly disturbed over the incident and had immediately asked Nafeesa Shah to investigate the matter.
