Turkish mom tortures toddler by injecting her with bleach, liquid soap
The woman, identified only as Elif K., and her daughter, Eylül Miray.
A mother in Istanbul has been arrested after confessing that she tortured her 1.5-year-old daughter by injecting her with bleach and liquid soap.
“I couldn’t take a shine to her, so I did it to kill her,” the mother from the Avcılar district, identified only as Elif K., told the police.
The woman had hid the torture sessions on her daughter, Eylül Miray, for several months.
The woman’s husband of 12 years had to take the poor child from hospital to hospital when blood started to come out of her ears and belly button. She was only one-month-old then.
Doctors failed to explain the symptoms and the mother was questioned by the police for the first time as the child was hospitalized with a fractured skull when she was nine-months-old.
The woman, who has two more children, was detained twice but was then released due to lack of evidence.
Turkish media reported Feb. 15 that she was finally arrested and sent to a prison after confessing to the horrendous crime.
Despite the severity of the torture sessions, local media reported that the child is recovering.
