SUNGAI PETANI – Parents of the four-month-old baby girl, who is in coma allegedly due to abuse, have been remanded until July 10 to facilitate further investigations into the case.
The remand order was issued by Magistrate Mohd Hadi Hakimi Harun today.
In a statement today, Kedah CID chief ACP Mohd Nashir Ya said the couple, aged 25 and 26, were arrested after giving their statements at the Kuala Muda District Police headquarters at 11 pm yesterday.
The baby was rushed to the Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital here after she had seizures and fell unconscious at her nursery last Wednesday.
She was reported to have suffered bleeding in the brain and slipped into a coma.
The case is being investigated under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001. – BERNAMA
