IPOH – A babysitter has been remanded for four days from today to facilitate investigations into an abuse case involving a six-year-old boy.
The woman aged 26 was earlier detained for 14 days in connection with the death of the boy’s three-year-old sister, Nor Saraniya Abdullah, 3, on March 3 at Taman Klebang Jaya, Chemor here. The remand expired yesterday.
The autopsy on the toddler stated signs of trauma and bleeding, and complications arising from infection exacerbated by poor nutrition.
Meanwhile, the boy was also found to have injuries believed to have been inflicted.
The woman was detained at 2.30 pm on March 4 at the forensic unit at Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital. – BERNAMA
