A 25-year-old Moroccan woman was arrested for torturing her 6-year-old daughter at their home in Salé.
A video of the incident was leaked on social media showing the abuse.
The violent incident has caused a stir on all social networking sites in Morocco over the past few days.
A video clip documented some of the scenes of the torture that the mother committed to her child, which included flogging and burning her body parts in their home in the city of Salé.
In a video, now viral, the girl, “Janat”, explained that she was subjected to many types of torture, including beatings and lashing in all parts of her body with sharp instruments, and her mother burned her after heating some household appliances.
She was locked up in a room without food and water.
The Urban Judicial Police Division of the New Salé Security District has opened an investigation under the supervision of the competent Public Prosecution, to determine the criminal acts attributed to a 25-year-old woman with multiple criminal records, who is suspected of being involved in deliberately subjecting her minor daughter to deliberate abuse and detention.
The authorities said that after searching the house, the police seized a number of tools they suspect were used to abuse and torture the 6-year-old victim.
They also seized 900 grams of cannabis suspected of being used by the mother.
The woman used to make and sell illegal substances.
Citizens in Morocco expressed their anger at this incident, calling for the imposition of the most severe penalties against this mother, who constantly deliberately tortured her young child.
