Ankita Lokhande was recently appalled by the news of a woman who heartlessly abused her child. The actor posted a video on her Instagram story with a glimpse of how a woman burns her child's body and his hands with a candle. Another woman, who sat next to her, watched her doing the same.
In the next video, the same woman was seen hitting the child on his head with her knuckles. While the child cried in pain and fear, another person who was shooting the video could be heard laughing in the backdrop. The woman also punched the kid on his stomach and back. The post was shared by a page on Instagram in which the photo of the child was also shared. The little boy's face was bruised with burns and scars. As per the location on the post, the video is from a household in Bengaluru, Karnataka.
The caption on the post shed light on the child abuse that prevails in the society and that child violence must stop. The caption had a request for the netizens to share the video as much as they can, to stop child abuse in the country. Several users flocked to express disgust and went on to tag UNICEF and the Mumbai police in the comments section. Netizens also urged actor Sonu Sood to look into the matter.
