Indian mother says her newborn baby looks like an alien

A horrified mum has refused to breastfeed her baby after claiming the ‘cursed’ child was born looking like an ‘alien’. Priyanka Kumari, 25, refused to nurse the deformed little girl after giving birth to her in India on Tuesday.

The baby, who is yet to be named, has a huge growth on her head, is covered in a hardened shell of skin and has bulging eyes.

Her arrival sent shockwaves around the Chakiya district, with curious members of the public flooding to the family home in Banshghat to see the baby in real life. Many have offered prayers believing she could be an incarnation of a Hindu god.

But Priyanka and her farm labourer husband Balindra Mahto, 34, are convinced “the child is cursed”.

The baby girl suffers from a rare genetic condition called Harlequin Ichthyosis. It occurs due to malnutrition and causes thickening of the skin and deformities.

Dr Rajan Sinha who is tending to the baby at the state-run facility, said: “The mother’s health condition is good, but we can’t say same about the baby.

“In such cases the probability of survival is only one in 10 million cases.”
