A SENIOR investigating officer told the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court today that the injuries sustained by Bella, a teenage girl with Down Syndrome, were not due to an accident or her own doing but from suspected abuse.

Rohaini Baharom from the Sexual, Women and Children Investigation Division (D11) of the Kuala Lumpur contingent police headquarters said this was based on a statement taken from two medical doctors from Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) who treated Bella, namely Dr Nizam Malik Bali Mohamed and Dr Sheshadri Sridar.

“From my investigation, paediatrician Nizam said in his statement that when he examined Bella there were traces of new and old scars on her body and he thought that the injury was not caused by an accident but suspected abuse,” she said.

The 20th prosecution witness said this during examination-in-chief by deputy public prosecutor Nor Azizah Mohamad at the trial of Rumah Bonda founder Siti Bainun Ahd Razali who is accused of neglecting and abusing the teenager.

Rohaini said Sheshadri had also found many new and old scars as well as new skin growing on the victim’s body.

“Sheshadri also stated that the injuries were caused by heating elements such as hot oil, water and heated objects or cigarette butts. “Bella’s injuries were not due to an accident or from her own actions and the injuries occurred over a long period of time,” said the witness.

Siti Bainun, 30, is facing two charges of neglecting and abusing Bella, causing the victim to suffer physical and emotional injuries.

She is charged with committing the offence at a condominium in Wangsa Maju between February and June 2021.

The trial before judge Izralizam Sanusi continues on October 26. – Bernama, October 19, 2022.
