Amaravati: An Andhra Pradesh couple has moved a family court in the state seeking permission for mercy killing for their one-year-old daughter Suhana as they are unable to afford her treatment costs.
The couple Bawajan and Shabana filed a petition at a family court in Madanpalle town in Chittoor district on Thursday (October 10), seeking permission for euthanasia for their daughter.
In the petition, the couple stated that since the birth of Suhana, she is suffering from hypoglycemia. The couple also said that they have already spent Rs 12 lakh on her treatment, but their daughter's condition has not improved.
The couple added that they were no longer in any position to bear the expenses and hence resorted to seek mercy killing. They have already sold their property and jewellery for their daughter’s treatment.
