HRANA News Agency – An eight year old girl is now in the hospital as a result of atrocious abuse and torture at the hands of her stepfather.

 

Dr. Kamran Aghakhani, forensic expert at Rasool Hospital, announced the news and in an interview with Mehr News Agency said, “This eight year old girl was transferred by the emergency division of State Welfare Organization to the burn and reconstruction unit of Motahari Hospital last night.”

 

Mentioning that he is also the expert in Motahari Hospital, Dr. Kamran Aghakhani further explained, “Unfortunately, due to multiple fractures in both head and arms, we were forced to transfer her to Motahari Hospital.”

 

In describing the status of this 8 year old girl, Dr. Kamran Aghakhani said, “We witness child abuse a lot, but her condition is not comparable to others.  The degree with which she has been abused and tortured is beyond words.”

 

Referring to two fractures in her head and forearm, the forensic expert added, “There were visible signs of flogging and cigarette burns all over her body such that there wasn’t a spot left unharmed.  She told us that she lived with her mother who is a drug addict and her stepfather, and she wasn’t feed anything for four days.”

 

Emphasizing the importance of disseminating the news of such tragic and painful abuse, Dr. Kamran Aghakhani said, “I ask the media to react to such child abuse and also request from the authorities to deal with the offenders severely.”

 

Referring to two fractures in her head and forearm, Dr. Kamran Aghakhani explained that in order to heal her burns and fractures, she was examined thoroughly, and x-ray images were taken.  He added, “The situation is so tragic that no one can believe what has happened, and you can’t say the person who has abused her has any human traits.”

 

This girl who lives in the south part of Tehran has been transferred by the emergency division of State Welfare Organization to the hospital.
