In yet another spine-chilling incident a four-year-old girl was rescued by activists from her mother and her live-in partner in Hyderabad. The mother and her partner used to allegedly brutally beat the girl and burn her with a hot iron spoon and pinched her. The child narrated her ordeal what she went through at home after being rescued by the activists.
"My daddy burnt me when I was eating," a four-year-old toddler told the workers of a child rights NGO. The rescuers were brought to tears as the child recounted her ordeal. "My daddy hit me first and pressed the hot iron spoon on me," she told them.
As per reports, the neighbours alerted a local politician about the incident happening who then passed on a message to activist Achyutha Rao, who rescued the child. When differences cropped up between the woman and her new partner recently, they started venting out their frustration on the child.
"Yet another instance of a child being targeted and abused because of the problem between adults. While a woman has a right to move on after a failed marriage, very often children are becoming inadvertent victims," Mr Rao said.
The four-year-old has been sent to a government-run home for rescued children.
