Kottayam: The five-year-old Shafeeq, the child who was brutally tortured by his father and step-mother in Kumily, has started breathing without the aid of the ventilator.

Dr Nishanth Paul, neuro-surgeon at the St John's Hospital, Kattap­ana, on Monday said that Shafeeq breathed for over three hours without the aid of the ventilator.

“Tho­ugh this is a positive development, we have to go a long way to save the child. A CT scan will be taken on Tuesday morning, and the oedema in the brain has to be reduced. Once that is done, there is hope for the boy,” the doctor said.

Doctors had on Sunday subjected him to tracheotomy surgery, which could help him to breathe without much difficult.
