A non-governmental organization Malaysian Tamilar Kular (MTK) found the elderly drenched and sitting by herself outside the house. She was also believed to be afraid of her nephew’s sudden return.

MTK president David Marshel said,

“She was soaking wet when our members (social workers) met her.”

The woman reportedly told the social workers,

“They poured water on me, I feel so cold because I am drenched. I can’t see.

“Parts of my body are swollen because they keep beating me. I only get a little bit of food.”

According to Sin Chew Daily, the woman had been beaten, splashed with water, insulted, and barred from using the toilet in her nephew’s house for years.

The woman told MTK representatives her eyesight worsened after being neglected by her nephew’s family, it began to blur last year, and she eventually turned blind without necessary medical help.

What’s worst, the woman had endured physical abuse by all five children of her nephew!

Marshel and his team lodged a police report the following day.

The police said in a statement,

“The woman told us she was living with them for three years. She was beaten with brooms, shoes, plates, and bowls. They locked her in the back portion every time they went to work.”

    Why took 3 years to rescue? Simply cannot imagine her suffering, presumemably there are more such cases out there. Such people without heart cannot be tolerated, must be punished.
