The police in the Eastern Region have mounted a search for the mother of an eleven-year-old girl, who poured hot water on the little child and locked her up in a room for six days to deny her medical attention.

The suspect, Sarah Perntwah, is currently on the run.

The 11-year-old girl resident at Akwatia is currently on admission at the St. Dominic Hospital.

The incident happened on 14 July 2018 but the victim was only sent to the hospital after the case was reported.

It is not clear what might have necessitated the act by the mother, but the PRO of the Eastern Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ebenezer Tetteh, said the mother locked the girl who sustained severe burns in a room and refused to allow her to access medical care.

The police said it was through the intervention of the Assemblymember for the Domeabra Electoral Area, Ahmed Yusif and a Unit Committee Member, Kwame Ajei, that the matter was reported to the Akwatia District Police on 20 July 2018.

The two had earlier failed in their attempt to get the victim’s mother to send her to the hospital, and, so, reported the matter to the police.
