Hyderabad: The city police today arrested a woman at Malakpet for beating up and torturing her own daughter. Acting on a complaint filed by a child rights NGO, the police rescued the child and arrested the woman, Saritha, a native of Paladugu Village in Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district.

According to the police, Saritha was involved in an extra-marital affair with Venkat Reddy, a Miryalaguda-based DCM driver, after parting ways with her husband. The two planned to get rid of the girl, aged three, since she was a distraction to their affair.

Venkat Reddy and Saritha often beat her up because of which the girl had marks all over her body. After the neighbors informed an NGO on child rights about the torture, the latter complained to the police.

The police arrested Saritha and placed her under custody in Shishu Vihar, while Venkat Reddy is absconding. Honorary President of the NGO, Achyuth Rao demanded strict action against the offenders.
