The 19-year-old man who used a cigarette lighter to burn the two-year-old daughter of his girlfriend on various parts of her body has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.
Anil Angnoo was charged on Friday for inflicting grievous bodily harm. He appeared at the Albion Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Ravindranauth Singh where the indictable charge was read to him. He pleaded guilty.
According to a police report, the man was visiting his girlfriend at Rose Hall Town, Corentyne, Berbice on August 1, 2021 where he assaulted and burnt her 2-year-old daughter.
While there the man became annoyed because the child was urinating and defecating more often than he deemed necessary.
As such he took a cigarette lighter and burnt her on her back and vagina causing her to receive injuries.
The child was taken to the Port Mourant Public Hospital by police after the report was filed. She was examined by a doctor on duty and was later sent away.
The suspect was arrested and placed into custody.
