Identity of mother caught slapping her baby, 42 times, revealed as police start hunt for her.
Police are investigating after horrifying footage showed a mother cruelly beating her tiny baby across the head. The mother, named as Aygul Kozhabaevna, was reportedly filmed by an unnamed eight-year-old girl who witnessed the brutal act.
It has been alleged that the woman was ‘teaching her child a lesson’ because the baby refused to stop crying. The footage originated in Kazakhstan, in the city of Almaty.
The woman doing the beating is reportedly a migrant worker from neighbouring Uzbekistan who had travelled to Almaty with her family looking for a better future.
The mother was staying with a friend and it was the friend’s daughter who allegedly filmed the video. Police are now said to be hunting for the woman as their investigation continues.
