A nine-year-old girl died on the spot after being thrown down twice allegedly by her mother from the terrace of a three-storey residential building in which they were living at Jaraganahalli in J.P. Nagar on Sunday.
Shocked residents, who saw the girl bleeding, barged into the house, pulled the mother out, thrashed her and tied her up to an electric pole before alerting the police.
Meanwhile, a few residents rushed the girl, Ashika Sarkar aka Shreya, to a nearby hospital where the doctor declared her as brought dead.
According to the police, Ashika was living with her mother, Swati Sarkar, 30, a native of West Bengal, for the past one year in the rented accommodation. Inquiries revealed that Swati, formerly a teacher in a private school, had separated from her husband, Kanchan Sarkar, a senior business analyst with a leading IT firm.
