An alcoholic mother in India was brutally beaten by a mob after being caught slicing off and consuming part of her 2-year-old daughter’s scalp.
Bharati Mondal was rescued by her uncle, Dablu Mondal, after he heard the toddler screaming. When he went to investigate the screams, Dablu discovered his sister-in-law, Pramila Mondal, cutting off a portion of her daughter’s flesh and eating it.
“I ran to check on her but there the scene I saw was beyond shocking,” Dablu said.
“Bharati was bleeding profusely as Pramila was eating the flesh of her head," he said. "I immediately snatched away Bharati from Pramila and rushed her to Malda Medical College and Hospital where she is admitted to ICU.”
After news spread of the horrific scene at the home in Gopalpur, India, locals tied the mother up with ropes and proceeded to beat her. She was saved after sister-in-law Mamta called police. When authorities arrived, the angry mob was broken up.
Pramila was brought to the hospital and treated for injuries sustained in the beating. Her daughter is being treated for her injuries, and will soon transfer to another better equipped hospital. Pramila's husband, Habu — who has two other children with his wife — has not been seen or heard from since going to Delhi for work last year.
Pramila is due to appear in court soon, according to police.
