CRAZY: Indian mum threw her 3-week-old-son from 4th floor

A newborn baby was killed when his mother tossed him from a fourth-floor window of their New York City apartment building and he landed on courtyard pavement 40 feet (12 meters) below, a prosecutor said Saturday in announcing her arrest on a murder charge. Rashida Chowdhury, 21, was awaiting arraignment a day after 3-week-old Rizwan Ahmad was found dead in a onesie on the barren courtyard of the building in the borough of Queens.

“This is a truly horrific and disturbing case,” Queens chief prosecutor Richard Brown said. “The alleged actions of the defendant are totally incomprehensible.”

Medical examiners ruled the baby’s death a homicide, saying he died of blunt impact injuries and had suffered skull fractures and lacerations to his brain, liver and spleen. Neighbour Mazol Ilyayeva told reporters she heard something fall around 4 am on Friday and then saw the child’s lifeless, bloody body in the courtyard.

Rizwan’s father stood stupefied after his lover’s arrest. “She is just crazy,” a dazed Rizwan Ahmad said, according to neighbor Mazol Ilyayeva. “Did you hear my baby cry when she threw him out of the window?” she heard the father moan. Police were investigating whether the murderous mom was battling post-partum depression in the days after the boy’s delivery, according to sources.

“I heard the mom is mentally ill,” said family friend Khan Kamal, 28. “The mom wouldn’t do this unless she was sick in the head.”

If convicted of murder, Chowdhury faces up to life in prison. She was charged with two murder counts: Intentional murder, and murder of a victim under the age of 11.
