Amritsar, September 14

Days after a video of a woman beating up her child mercilessly went viral, the police on Monday booked the couple under the Juvenile Justice Act. At present, the boy is under treatment.

The accused have been identified as Amanpreet Kaur and her husband Jagjit Singh. A case was registered after a local resident filed a complaint with the police in this connection.

In his complaint to the police, the complainant stated that in the video clip Amanpreet Kaur was seen brutally beating up her son Prathambir Singh. He said her husband, Jagjit Singh, instead of saving the child was making his video, therefore he was equally responsible for the brutal act.

Later, a child helpline came to the rescue of the child who was admitted to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital for treatment.

The woman had later claimed that the video was over two months old and that the boy had not sustained any injuries at that time. She said the video went viral after she lodged a complaint against his foster father who had beaten him up badly.

The police said investigation had been initiated in the case while a case under Section 75 of the Justice Juvenile Act had been registered against the couple.
