Srinagar: A day after baby Afreen died at a Bangalore hospital, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday expressing his outrage over the death said he felt ashamed to share his name with that of her father.

Omar tweeted: "For once I'm ashamed to share my name with someone. Her (Afreen) father's name and my first "n (and) middle name are the same."

Three-month-old Afreen, allegedly battered and abused by her father Umar Farooq for being born a girl, died at a hospital in Bangalore on Wednesday after suffering a cardiac arrest.
