Graphic photos: Muslim student stabs her newborn baby with scissors, pulling out the intestines because she was ashamed of giving birth outside wedlock

20-year-old student from East Java, Indonesia has been arrested for stabbing her own newborn baby out of shame because she was not married.

According to reports, Fitriana Wibowo, (pictured) a student Muhammadiyah University gave birth in the bathroom of her rented hostel room and stabbed the baby with a pair of scissors.

The violent crime was revealed after a woman heard cries of a baby. She informed her husband and they went to Fitriana's room and found the baby in critical condition. The suspect was in the bathroom.

Medical examiners confirmed that the baby was stabbed several times using scissors to cut out the intestines. Some bruises were also found on the baby's body believed to have been inflicted by the mother.

It is reported that doctors managed to save the baby and she is currently guarded at Magoro Hospital. Investigation is still ongoing.

The stigma of zina (the Islamic term for sin of adultery) is so strong in some parts of Indonesia that many girls below the age of 18 get married just to avoid it.
