A mother allegedly killed her one-year-old daughter after getting annoyed by her crying in the Mangalhat area of Hyderabad, India on Tuesday night, Feb. 1.

The woman, identified as 29-year-old Laxmi, a rag picker, allegedly found herself annoyed by her one-year-old daughter's loud crying and screams after a long day of rummaging for scraps on late Tuesday.

In a fit of rage and frustration, she reportedly mercilessly beat her child to stop the kid from crying. When the toddler continued to wail, the suspect proceeded to strangle her own daughter to death, India Today reported.

The woman reportedly resided near Seetharambagh temple and was under the influence of alcohol when she brutally choked her young daughter.

“The woman told us the baby was crying loudly so she hit her. The woman was in an inebriated condition,” said the Mangalhath police.

The mother's neighbors subsequently notified the authorities regarding the violent incident. Officers rushed to the scene and found the girl dead on the spot. They immediately transported the child's body to a mortuary for autopsy. Meanwhile, the police took the woman into custody and launched an investigation into the incident.

In a similar but unrelated incident, an Indian father has been accused of murdering his own infant son by replacing the baby's milk formula with poison due to his frustration over the child crying too loud, Latin Times reported.

The tragic incident reportedly took place at the Veera Chandpur village in the Katihar district of Bihar state, India on Oct. 1, 2021.

On early Oct. 1, the child's mother, Poonam Devi, left her one-and-a-half-year-old son identified as Yugmit Kumar under the supervision of her 24-year-old husband Munna Mandal. However, Mandal would reportedly feel annoyed by the child's incessant crying. The frustrated dad has been accused of deciding to poison and kill his own child by feeding his newborn son pesticide instead of milk.

When Devi returned home, she noticed that her son was lying on her husband's lap unresponsive and motionless. Mandal, who is an autorickshaw driver by profession, claimed to the woman that he accidentally fed the baby from a 100-milliliter pesticide bottle instead of milk.

A distraught Devi proceeded to alert and seek help from her neighbors and they immediately rushed the baby to a hospital for treatment. However, the child was declared dead on the way to the health facility.

Devi has since approached police officials regarding the incident and has lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against her husband.
