In a shocking case a woman in Kerala beat her 4-year-old daughter to death for refusing to eat. The incident has been reported from Kollam district in the southern state.
Diya’s parents, Dipu (Deepak) and Ramya, a nurse, had hospitalized her at the at the government medical college in Paripally earlier on Sunday. They had complained of a fainting episode and high fever. However, the doctors treating Diya said she had bruises all over her body, along with internal bleeding.
Doctors referred her to CSI hospital in Kazhakoottam but she died en route.
Diya’s paternal aunt said that she had noticed two to three markings on her body. She asked Ramya if she had beaten the child to which Ramya replied that she did beat Diya, just on Sunday, with a stick as she was refusing to eat. The child then started vomiting blood and was referred to another hospital.
Doctors claim that the bruises and internal injuries seen on the child are not just from Sunday, but look at least two days old.
She said, “This is the first time I heard that Ramya beat her child. She is a nurse, and therefore has always been very caring towards her children. I don’t know anything else.”
Local police arrested Ramya after the hospital filed a case.
