New Delhi: Delhi Police on Tuesday filed a criminal case against a mother seen in a video punching and slapping her 18-month-old son.

The case was registered against the woman after the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) forwarded its complaint to police along with the video captured by a CCTV camera installed by the mother-in-law of the accused.

DCW Chief Swati Maliwal assured justice in "an absolutely shocking" incident. "The mother-in-law of the woman approached us and showed us the evidence. The manner in which the woman is beating her son is obnoxious," Maliwal said.

The mother, a resident of Geeta Colony, is absconding.

"We have filed an FIR. The accused has fled and an investigation has been initiated," Deputy Commissioner of Police, East, Omvir Singh said.

Maliwal said the woman could be suffering from a psychic disorder. "Cannot beat animal in manner she beat her own son. Her mental condition needs to be investigated. We are trying to investigate. If that is the matter, then the DCW will try and ensure that this woman gets treated,” said Maliwal.

The boy was also brought before the Child Welfare Committee and his custody has been handed over to his aunt and the grandmother.
