Battered boys condition improving, says doctor

Idukki: The condition of the five-year-old boy, who was hospitalised here after being brutalised by his parents, is stabilising, a doctor treating him said Sunday.

"The boy's condition is improving and only 20 percent of the time he is on the ventilator support. Later in the day, we will perform a tracheotomy on him. His bowel is also functioning well," a doctor told the media Sunday morning.

The doctor added that a CT scan has revealed a minor injury on the boy's head which is not of serious nature.

The boy's father, a labourer, brought him to a hospital here Monday with head injuries. He attributed the injuries to a fall from a ladder.

However, doctors found burn marks on his body, a deep wound in his head and a broken leg. They then alerted the police.

On questioning, it was found that the child had been subjected to brutality by his parents. The boy's father and his step-mother have been arrested.
