A police officer went into investigation when a 9-year-old girl was found abused in Changnyeong, Gyeongnam.

The Changnyeong Police Station in Gyeongnam announced today (8th) that his father-in-law B and his father's mother C had been arrested for the abuse of their daughter A for two years from 2018 to recent years.

The couple's abuse was reported when a citizen with a large bruise in his eye was discovered and reported to the police. It was reported that on May 29, at about 6:20 pm, Miss A found on the street in Daehap-myeon, Changnyeong, was wearing a slipper for adults as if he had left the house in a hurry. My finger was also burned and severely wounded.

A citizen who discovered the child testified in a media interview that "it wasn't a normal child. It was muddy and (he) starved a lot."

As a result of the investigation, the police found that stepfather B had repeatedly abused her daughter's finger by placing it on a hot frying pan. Mr. B said, "I did it because my daughter didn't listen to it."

Based on A's statement that his mother's mother, C and B, had been abusive after remarriage two years ago, the police are calling C to investigate this week.

Currently, A is protected by a child institution and is being hospitalized.
