2-year-old T. Neeveisha, from Bukit Siput, died after she was allegedly beaten by a relative who found her eating her faeces. The girl was intellectually-impaired and was short of six days from her third birthday.

The 27-year-old relative had beaten her on her hands, legs, back, buttocks and in between her legs with a broom stick. It was also revealed that Neeveisha had previous injuries suggesting she was physically abused. Both her knees were swollen.

The relative had sent the girl to Segamat Hospital but she was pronounced dead on arrival. The relative was arrested yesterday and the case has been classified as murder.
