KUALA LUMPUR: The police have confirmed that a baby girl shown being abused in a video that went viral on social media recently was from an incident that occurred on May 21 at a childcare centre in Taman Samudera, Batu Caves here.

Acting Gombak district police chief Supt Noor Ariffin Mohamad Nasir shared that a police report was lodged by the baby’s mother on the same day after she found several bruises on the baby’s thigh and cheek.

"The police then arrested a local woman, 23, who was a babysitter at the centre and she was charged at the Selayang Court on May 30.

"She pleaded guilty to a charge under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001 and was fined RM10,000 with a three-year good behaviour bond, and was ordered to do community service,” he said in a statement on Friday (June 2) night.

"The owner pleaded guilty to a charge under Regulation 3. Licensing of Trades, Businesses and Industries By-Laws (MPS) 2007 and was fined RM1,000,” he said.

He also advised the public to not make any comment about the viral video as it would affect public order. - Bernama
