A 55-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly strangling her 4-day-old granddaughter last month as she was born with deformities, police in Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh said on Thursday.

"On the basis of this report and our probe, we arrested the child's paternal grandmother. She has been charged with murder," Ashok Singh Jadaun said.
