Shocking footage of abuse that has enraged netizens and alerted the police.
Police are seeking information on a video clip showing a woman sadistically abusing a child which has gone viral on social media.
Royal Malaysia Police Corporate Communications head Asmawati Ahmad said in a statement released in Kuala Lumpur yesterday that so far no one had lodged a police report on the matter.
Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact the nearest police station.
The clip lasting one minute and 36 seconds has spread like wildfire on the WhatsApp application.
The footage believed to have been shot in Malaysia shows the woman viciously beating, slapping, heavily pounding and quite literally clobbering a screaming baby as she changes the toddler’s diaper and clothes.
The child, thought to be about a year old, shrieks throughout the ordeal, which takes place on an unmade bed in a dark dingy room.
The violence escalates to the point where the woman attempts to strangle the visibly distressed baby by swinging it mercilessly by the neck using its own shirt.
The entire incident is recorded by an individual who is also in the room but makes no attempt to intervene.
The video is extremely disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.
