A 25-year-old mother was locked in a bathroom for three years and banned from seeing her child because she gave birth to a girl, reports claim.

The Indian woman found with overgrown nails and torn clothes could not open her eyes in the sunlight.

And she wept inconsolably when her daughter did not recognise her.

Police forced entry into her makeshift prison in Darbhanga, east of Patna, after her father sought intervention, according to the International Business Times.

Interviews revealed she had been tortured consistently since her wedding in 2010 after failing to bring enough dowry - money and gifts donated from the bride's family to the groom's.

When she gave birth to a girl, she was locked up.
