Child’s Body Found Partially Eaten

In a horrifying incident in Karnataka, India, a 6-year-old boy was found partially devoured by a crocodile after his mother allegedly threw him into a canal. The boy, named Vinod, had a hearing and speech disability. His mother, Savitri, reportedly committed the act on a Saturday night. The canal, notorious for its crocodile infestation, became the site of the young boy’s untimely death. His partially consumed body was recovered the following day.

The incident was reportedly preceded by a heated argument between Savitri and her husband, Ravi. Ravi is said to have blamed Savitri for their son’s disabilities, leading to the dispute. Allegations suggest that Ravi had been pressuring Savitri to abandon their son due to his disabilities.

Despite the neighbors alerting the police, the search for Vinod was initially put on hold until the following morning. The boy’s body was eventually discovered with multiple bite marks and a missing hand, adding to the horror of the situation. During the investigation, Savitri accused her husband of mistreatment and of repeatedly wishing for their son’s death.

The incident has triggered widespread outrage and underscored the urgent need for more robust measures against child abuse and violence, especially towards disabled individuals. Organizations such as the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline provide crucial support, offering toll-free and confidential assistance 24/7 in over 170 languages.

This heart-wrenching incident serves as a grim reminder of the struggles faced by families with disabled children and the importance of cultivating an inclusive society. It emphasizes the need to raise awareness about child abuse and to prioritize the safety and well-being of vulnerable individuals.
