This is the state of Punjab and Haryana where the people have since very long practiced female foeticide and infanticide. The condition now is so bad that Punjab has only 748 females to a 1000 males and Haryana marginally more at 843 per 1000.
The real heart breaker is the fact that even middle class and upper class families, people who are educated support these practices. It breaks my heart.
To top it all, these people have now started buying girls from the poorer states of India like Assam and Bengal. And the price they pay is less than what a buffalo would cost.
and the police have the audacity to say that this is not on our priority.(refer to the link above)
