It is for us to understand that, ‘a child is no more the property of the parents‘, that they beat or use their children, and that society has to play a major role in ‘protection of child near them’, in the same way as they interfere in husband-wife quarrels. Our society treats crime committed by any woman very leniently, but one thing has to be understood that sometimes it may become a matter of one’s life and death, so be aware.
