SUNGAI PETANI: A two-year-old toddler, believed to have been abused by her mother and male companion, died on the way to the Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital here.

The toddler, identified as Ainul Solehah Mohd Husamuddin, was rushed to the hospital by her 22-year-old mother.

Kuala Muda district police chief Asst Comm Md Zukir Md Isa said the girl was pronounced dead at 9.40pm on Wednesday.

In a statement, ACP Md Zukir said there were old and new bruises found on Ainul Solehah’s body.

“Post-mortem results showed that there was swelling on the top of the victim’s head and she had also sustained a fracture on her right shoulder.

“It is believed that the victim was abused on Aug 8 after she returned from her grandmother’s house in Manjung, Perak, with her mother,” he said.

ACP Md Zukir also said that Ainul Solehah was also allegedly abused by her babysitter on Jan 9.

The babysitter was charged in court for the offence on Feb 1.

He said that the toddler’s mother and her 24-year-old companion have been arrested and remanded for a week, pending investigations into the case for murder.

In KOTA KINABALU, a parent lodged a report, claiming her three-year-old daughter was abused by her kindergarten teacher.

Tawau police chief ACP Fadil Marsus said police had picked up a suspect to assist in investigations.

When contacted, the parent said her daughter complained of pain in her private parts on Monday after attending kindergarten.

“I sent her for a check-up before lodging a report on Wednesday as advised by the hospital authorities,” she said, adding that she would leave the matter to the police.
