A baby girl in India is being worshipped as a Hindu god, after she was born with a trunk.

The girl, who has not yet been named, was born in a village in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, in northern India on Thursday.

People are now flocking to see the new-born infant as they believe she is an incarnation of the Hindu deity Ganesha, who also has a trunk.

Speaking to ANI, the baby’s aunty said that crowds had since arrived to make offerings to the child.

‘My sister-in-law gave birth to a girl at 7:00 a.m. and her face looks exactly like Lord Ganesha’, she said.

‘This is why whoever hears about her is coming here to get a glimpse of the baby and are making whatever offerings possible’.

The girl was born to Rambabu Sarvesh and his wife Banna Devi.

Mr Sarvesh, who is already a father to three children, earns 250 rupee ($5.17) a day, and hopes that his daughter’s birth will result in a change to the family’s fortunes, according to the Times of India.

Doctors have said that the girl’s deformity was most likely due to a gene mutation, as a result of malnutrition.
