Boy tortured by parents, battles for life

Idukki: In a shocking incident, a five-year-old boy has been brutally beaten up and inflicted injuries allegedly by his father and stepmother, who were taken into custody.

Shafeeq was admitted to a private hospital at Kattappana near here Tuesday with serious injuries.

Police took into custody the boy's father Sherif (27) and stepmother Aleesha (26) based on details gathered from the private hospital.

The boy was admitted to the hospital with multiple burn marks on his body and fractured bones. The couple had initially said the injuries were the result of a fall, but the doctors who examined the boy ruled that out and informed the police of the incident, police sources said.

Apart from being brutally beaten up causing deep injuries on the head and chin, the child's body was found to have been scoured by nails, police said.

After the death of the child's mother a few years back, his father had married another woman.

Report sought

With the incident coming to his notice, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy asked the district authorities to submit an urgent report on the incident.
