SHAH ALAM: A 23-year-old employee of a child care centre pleaded not guilty in a Sessions Court here to a charge of abusing a toddler.

Norsyafiqah Anis Mohamad Ahpandi was charged with abusing the three-year-old boy by causing injury to him.

She allegedly committed the offence at an Aman Putri child care centre between 4.30pm and 5.30pm on Feb 17.

In submissions for bail, Deputy Public Prosecutor Naliatul Huzaimi Ab Rasip offered bail at RM20,000 with one surety and applied for the accused to report at the police station once a month.

However, Norsyafiqah's counsel Siti Rohaya Mohd Tajuddin said her client was the sole breadwinner for her family after her father stopped working.

Siti Rohaya added that Norsyafiqah earned RM1,000 monthly and  supported her three siblings who were still schooling.

Sessions Court judge Slamat Yahya set bail at RM10,000 with one surety and ordered Norsyafiqah to report to the nearest police station on the first day of the month.

He also issued an order prohibiting her from disturbing the toddler and his family members pending disposal of the case and set March 28 for mention.
