A mother and stepfather have been arrested for inflicting these horrific wounds on the back of a 12-year-old boy that it turned out officials had not even realised was living in the country.

They say that because he was unregistered he was not attending school, and as he was not attending school the abuse had been going on for years with nobody realising until now when he was found by neighbours in a blood-soaked t-shirt.

Reports state the youngster told neighbours in the village of Kampung Batu Bakar in the Malaysian state of Johor that the horrific wounds to his back and face were inflicted with the electrical cable of a rice cooker by his mother and step-father.

In the photos, the shocking wounds on the boy’s back can be seen, with deep cuts around his spine and a scar on his cheek.

The neighbours are said to have filed a criminal complaint and the boy’s stepfather and mother were arrested.

The step-father is reportedly 29 years old and a Malaysian native whilst the 38-year-old mother is said to be foreign, but her nationality has not been disclosed.

The step-father is said to have been a cop in the at the Puchong Jaya station before being released from the force in 2013.

The youngster has reportedly never been registered as a Malaysian citizen and so has never attended school.

He is currently in hospital and will be cared for by the Department of Social Welfare when he is released.

Reports state the police believe the abuse of the boy had been ongoing for two years. It is unclear if the suspects have been charged and police have seized items suspected of having been used to abuse the youngster, including a bamboo cane and coat hangers.

The investigation is ongoing.
