A three-year-old girl believed to have been sodomised and abused by her mother’s Sudanese boyfriend was found dead in her house.
Her mother and boyfriend have been detained by police when their report was found to be false.
Aaliyah Aiman Hussin Abdullah was found sprawled in her house in Venice Hill Condominium in Kajang on Oct 12 by her mother when she returned home from work.
The 24-year-old single mother, accompanied by her boyfriend, lodged a report at the Kajang police headquarters.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Shakaruddin Che Mod said the mother alleged that her maid had abused Aaliyah and had run away but investigation revealed that no maid worked in the house.
A post-mortem revealed that Aaliyah suffered a fractured skull and had injuries on her body, said ACP Shakaruddin, adding that they had no confirmation yet of Aaliyah being sodomised.
“There are signs of she having been sodomised but we are still waiting for the full report from the experts,” he said yesterday.
Initial investigation revealed that the 25-year-old boyfriend, who claimed to be a student at a local university, had been staying with Aaliyah and her mother for almost a year.
ACP Shakaruddin said the boyfriend was no longer a student and his travelling document had expired.
