A woman who was nine-months pregnant and was shot three times in a suspected 'honour killing', has given birth to a baby boy, with three bullets still inside her.

Susheela Kumar, along with his husband Pradip were attacked while they slept in their home in northern India, according to The Sun.

Pradip and his parents Suresh and Sunita were killed on the scene, while Susheela was rushed to hospital.

She was hit by three bullets: one in her arm, the other passed through her mouth and the third bullet pierced through her pancreas.

At hospital Susheela underwent a C-section and gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

According to The Sun, Susheela, an upper cast Jat, had married Pradip from a scheduled cast four years ago, against wishes of her parents.

The couple had left their village, but returned to Pradip's parents when they learned they were expecting a baby.

Authorities suspect the shooting is an honour killing.

Police are investigating whether Susheela's brother was involved in the attack.
