Kuala Terengganu: Mohd Danish Aiman Abdullah, the two and a half-year-old boy who was tortured by his mother's boyfriend, is showing positive signs of recovery after undergoing a surgery to remove a blood clot in the brain last Saturday.
Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital neurosurgery expert Doktor Najaimin Udin said based on medical examination, the boy's body bore numerous torture marks, with the most severe being the recent ones.
"Mohd Danish is now able to give a good reaction and move his mouth, legs and hands even though he has yet to reach full consciousness," he said when met at the hospital here today.
However, he said Mohd Danish was scheduled to undergo another surgery on a later date. The boy's mother, Norisah Kassim, 22, who was also at the hospital, refused to make any comment.
Mohd Danish Aiman, fell into a coma after he was believed to have been tortured and slapped by the mother's boyfriend at about 9pm last Saturday.
The incident was believed to have been sparked off by a misunderstanding between the victim's mother and the 31-year-old man, at the suspect's house.
Police are in the midst of tracking down the man and the case is being investigated under Section 31(1)(a) of the Child Act 2001 which provides a maximum jail term of 10 years or fine, or both, upon conviction. -- Bernama
