The police called the incident “a matter of negligence by the parents” and clarified that no complaint had yet been lodged. The incident falls within the jurisdiction of Faridpur police station. Harveer Singh, SHO of Faridpur police station, said, “The family refused to lodge a complaint and the body was given to them after due procedure. Our investigation found that the baby girl was injured because of the mobile explosion. The family said that it was an accident and didn’t want to press any charges.”
The kid’s father was at work when the mishap occurred. The mother had put her daughters to bed on different charpoys while putting her phone on charge. She explained, “I was speaking to a neighbour when I heard my daughter Nandini shouting for help. The charpoy was ablaze because of the mobile explosion. Neha (the eight-month-old) was badly burnt. I never thought that my mobile phone could be deadly for my daughter, else I wouldn’t have kept it there,” she said.
The kid’s father is a labourer and lives with his family in an under-construction house. They don’t have a power connection because of this they use a solar plate and a battery for charging their mobile phones.
