Officials of Balasore district child welfare committee said the women used to beat him up frequently.
“The boy’s parents work as daily labourers in Mumbai and left their son with his grandmother. When we saw the video, we were shocked. We will take necessary action in this regard,” said Bhagirathi Barik, chairperson of Balasore child welfare committee.
The woman has been detained for questioning. She told the CWC members that she got angry when the boy did not sit down to study after returning from tuition and spilled a glass of milk. “He is just a kid but always gets angry. So I beat him up,” she said.
