A three-year-old girl died in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district after her father, who was drunk, allegedly slammed her on the floor, police said on Sunday.
Govind Lodhi, of Nayakherha, was an alcoholic and used to fight with his wife almost everyday, Maurawan Station House Officer Anil Singh said.
Lodhi's wife, Gudiya, said he used to beat her up after getting drunk. "My daughter after seeing this, used to hug me," she said.
On Saturday, this angered Lodhi and he slammed her on the floor, the woman said.
Police said no complaint has so far been registered and further action will be initiated on the basis of a complaint and the postmortem report.
