The little girl on her hospital bed after she was rescued.
After one month in hospital, the 11-year-old girl who was allegedly forced by her grandparents to sit on hot water as punishment for bedwetting, has been discharged from the Police Hospital.
She had severe burns and could not sit. News about her ordeal shocked many when the police rescued here from a room where the suspects had kept her for days.
She is very hearty and playful like any child of her age.
Coordinator of Network Against Child Abuse at the Police Hospital DSP Elvis Bawa Sadongo said the girl will be sent to her new foster parents.
Last Thursday her grandparents, Christiana Torkonoo, 50 and her husband 65-year old James Agbamavo were each granted Ghc 15,000 bail by a Circuit Court in Accra, with three sureties.
Presiding Judge, Sedina Agbemava adjourned the case to March 5 to enable the victim recover well to give her testimony in court.
