SUNGAI PETANI: A body of a two-yearold boy wrapped in a com­forter was found in­side an ice box at a unit of the Paya Nahu flats near here early yes­ter­day.

Po­lice, who went to the unit to in­ves­ti­gate a do­mes­tic quar­rel, stum­bled upon the body in one of the unit’s room.

Af­ter re­ceiv­ing the tip-off of the quar­rel at 1.25am, Kuala Muda po­lice chief ACP Md Zukir Md Isa said po­lice went to the unit only to find the body and a phys­i­cally abused girl.

The four-year-old girl, who was the boy’s sis­ter, was badly in­jured from phys­i­cal abuse and was sent to the Sul­tan Ab­dul Halim Hos­pi­tal, he said in a state­ment. She is re­ported to be in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

Md Zukir said a 26-year-old woman, who claimed to be the mother, said the boy was beaten to death on Nov 9 by her 34-year-old male com­pan­ion.

“Ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that the woman and her com­pan­ion had phys­i­cally abused the two chil­dren.”

The mother and her com­pan­ion, who were ar­rested at about 6am, were tested pos­i­tive for am­phet­a­mine.

Md Zukir said po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case un­der Sec­tion 302 and 325 of the Pe­nal Code. – Ber­nama
