Balasore: Sending shock waves, a video showing a woman horrifically bashing her 7-year-old grandson in Odisha’s Balasore district is doing the rounds on social media.
However, police have detained the woman for interrogation.
In the video, a woman identified as Brundabati Chanda of Gangadharpur village was seen pushing her grandson to the ground and brutally kicking him. She was also seen scolding the boy purportedly for dropping a neighbour’s baby on the ground.
