Dr Tariq told The Express Tribune that the initial medical report confirmed the death of the Pakistani child was a result of the 7 Kg of mud which was thrown upon her.

The post-mortem procedures were conducted by Dr Muhammad Tariq and Dr Rubeena from the Kacha Khu rural health center.

Dr Rubeena added that she was physically healthy and had no impairments, only noting that the newborn had a “large face.”

Even more shocking is that fact that the father perpetuated this horrible act.

“It was my will because she was my child and every person has the right to do anything with their children,” the father told authorities.

The was identified by the infant’s father, who confessed to burying her alive last week, claiming he “did not live her looks.”

He is being held by police, as residents are calling for the father to be buried alive in the same manner as his daughter.

Further samples have been sent to a nearby forensics labs for more detailed results.

Samples have been taken from the child’s body and sent to Lahore to a forensic laboratory for a detailed autopsy report.
