The Delhi Commission for Women has taken up the case of a woman seen brutally thrashing her 18-month-old son in a video. The incident was caught on a CCTV camera.
DCW Chief Swati Maliwal said the Delhi Police had registered an FIR against the mother. “Working with the police to ensure justice,” she said on Twitter. “Shocked at the brutality of the mother...Her mental condition needs to be investigated.”
The incident was brought to light after the child’s grandmother approached the commission for help two days ago, according to Dainik Bhaskar.
