A very heartbreaking incident was reported from the capital city of Pakistan, Islamabad. A 2-years old girl was apparently physically abused by the neighbor. The FIR of the incident claimed that the 2-year-old girl went to her grandparent’s house in the neighborhood in the morning.
After a while, the girl’s mother came out of the house looking for her daughter in the grandparent’s home, but she couldn’t find her. According to the mother, the girl came out crying from another house in the neighborhood. Her dress was stained with blood.
The grandmother of the child decided to go to the house where the child came from. She knocked on the door and a man came out of the bathroom. Before asking anything, he started saying that he didn’t do anything.
The child was taken for the checkup to the hospital where the doctor directed the parents to visit the police first. They went to the police station first and later they took the child to another hospital where the doctor disclosed the bitter truth after the examination.
The mother said after the initial examination the doctor said that their girl had been physically abused. The family launched an FIR against the man who was living in the neighborhood house on rental basis. They claimed that he hid in the bathroom after the offensive act.
Police have also registered the case and arrested the man on a suspect basis. However, no further legal action has been taken as police are waiting for medico-legal reports.
This is no the first case of child abuse in Pakistan. We have covered many stories before where children have been physically abused by their neighbors or people they know. It is very important to take utmost care of your children and not allow them to go anywhere with anyone who is not a direct relative.
