In an incident that pulls inhumanity to an all-time low, two minor girls were branded with hot iron rods by quacks in Bhilwara area of Jaipur. Soon after the act, the two were rushed to hospitals.

A nine-year-old girl of Chittorgarh, suffering from pneumonia, was on Friday brought to MG Government Hospital.

"Her parents had earlier taken her to a quack who branded her with hot iron and the marks were visible on her body," Dr O P Agal, child specialist, said.

"As soon as we started the treatment her parents took her back without informing the hospital administration," he said.

In another case, a two-year-old suffering from anaemia was on Sunday admitted with similar marks on her body, the doctor said. Her parents had also taken her to a quack who thrashed her with a hot iron rod, he said.

Police have been informed about both the cases, he added.
