Kochi: A three-year-old boy, who was undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Aluva with severe head injuries allegedly inflicted by his mother for being ‘disobedient’, died on Friday morning.
The mother of the boy, who is from Jharkhand, was arrested for attempt to murder and under Juvenile Justice Act. The boy was suspected to have been tortured by his mother and he continued to remain in coma without any response.
The boy suffered bleeding in brain and the clots were removed through surgery. The boy also suffered multiple bruises on lower limbs and burn injuries too.
This is the second such incident in a month in the state after the brutal assault and murder of a seven-year-old Thodupuzha boy by his stepfather.
