    The face of the mother displayed nothing that was motherly with no compassion at all for the poor child! Punishing a child with brutal force as this, is inhumane!

    I hope the Police will teach these maroons taste of their own while they are in detention like what the Andhra Police did in India to rape suspects. How can a father allow this to his own daughter
