A maid is being investigated after she allegedly chopped off the hands of her married employer’s baby because he refused to admit that he is the father of her child, police in Malawi said.

Chiradzulu police said that they are investigating the 19-year-old maid of the wealthy businessman, who cut off the hands of her employer’s newborn baby.

According to claims made by the maid, her employer had sex with her several times and she got pregnant.

When the businessman learned that his maid got pregnant, he made it clear that he will not take responsibility for the child and will not support her.

When the employer refused to acknowledge paternity of the child after the birth, the maid cut off the hands of his baby in protest.

She is being investigated on a charge of assault causing grievous bodily harm after the mother of the baby called police to report the incident.
