Other women laughed at child’s misery
The woman drops burning hot candle wax on the child’s hands, not once but thrice. The woman also punched the child on his head, stomach and back. The torture did not end here, the woman could be seen putting a tissue over the child’s mouth, signalling him to stop crying. Other women, who seem to be present in the room can be heard laughing at the child’s plight.
