PORT DICKSON: Abuse victim Nur Aina Nabihah who died on Jan 31 was believed to have been bitten on her neck.
Port Dickson district police chief, Superintendent Zainudin Ahmad said the victim’s father admitted to this during investigations.
“He also admitted to forcing the victim to do 500 push-ups. It was believed that the victim has been abused since early last year to 'cure' her of her stubbornness,” he told the New Straits Times Press.
It was reported that Nur Aina died as a result of abuse, with a post-mortem examination determining the child had injuries to her kidneys, broken bones and other internal injuries.
The suspect, 35, and his 34-year-old wife, who is the victim’s stepmother were remanded for seven days until yesterday before being extended another seven days for the police to investigate under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
Meanwhile, Zainudin said the two suspects will be charged at the magistrate’s court on Tuesday.
