DISTURBED

At home, the young mother appeared to be disturbed and kept to herself.

“I used the motherly approach to interrogate her but she remained adamant. I felt she was hiding something. I again invited her for a motherly chat and that’s when she revealed what was troubling her,” said the mother.

She said she was unaware that her daughter was pregnant and that she had given birth.
