A little girl died after being used as a ‘voodoo doll’ by her mother’s superstitious boss.
The child, 3, was sexually assaulted, and was taken to hospital in Kolkata, West Bengal in a critical condition on July 15.
Doctors told that the child had suffered multiple internal injuries — some of which were inflicted around her private parts, India Today reports.
‘There are as many as seven needles forced into the child’s body,’ the hospital commented on her initial state.
The three-year-old’s mother rushed the tragic youngster to hospital where medics discovered needles had been injected into her body during horrific ‘black magic’ abuse
‘The needles could not be taken out as it may cause further damage to her body. She is kept under observation.’
The incident came into light when her mother took her to Bankura Medical College with a suspected fever. She was tortured and abused badly.
The doctors discovered that the child had been brutally abused and that needles had been injected into her body.
Further external injuries were also discovered, including ones close to her private parts that were caused by needles.
