Hyderabad: A three-year-old girl was brutally thrashed by her father on Monday as a result she went into coma. The incident occurred under the jurisdiction of Saifabad police station where a case has been registered against the girl’s father Basith Khan.
Based on a complaint from mother Sana Fatima, he was charged with attempted murder by the Saifabad police.
Basith is an auto-rickshaw driver and his wife Sana Fathima is now 8 months pregnant. Sakina is the third among the four daughters of Basith. Police believe that he might be disturbed and frustrated due to the family’s economic condition.
According to the Indian Express, Sakina stayed too long in the washroom and was playing with water. After she refused to pay heed to Basith’s annoyance, an angry Basith went in with a ladle and started beating her.
Fathima tried to intervene but was pushed away by Basith who dropped the girl on the floor in anger. Fathima found froth coming out of child’s mouth. She rushed her to a nearby clinic but was referred to the Osmania General hospital, where she is in coma.
