25 August 2013| last updated at 08:50PM

The child died without regaining consciousness at 2.40pm at the paediatric intensive care unit.


Sources said the post mortem would be held tomorrow.


It was reported the girl suffered severe injuries after she was believed to have been abused by her own mother at their home in Taman Wang, Menglembu here on Aug 8. 


The girl's father took her to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital for treatment and the attending doctor lodged a police report at the hospital's police base.


The parents were later remanded and the mother was subsequently charged for child abuse on Aug 21.


Choong Mee Chin, 30, claimed trial to two counts of injuring the child under the Child Act 2001 and the Penal Code, respectively.


On the first count, Choong is accused of hitting the girl on the head and all over her body with a cane at the living room of her home in Taman Wang, Menglembu, at 9am on Aug 8.


She was charged under Section 31(1) of the Child Act 2001, which carries RM20,000 fine or 10 years' jail or both upon conviction.


On the second count, she is alleged to have caused grievous hurt to the child at the same place and time.


She was charged under Section 325 of the Penal Code, punishable under the same law, which carries  seven years' jail and fine on conviction.


The magistrate's court, however, granted Choong's application, made through her counsel Chong Kok Yew and J.L. Khong, to be sent to Hospital Bahagia Ulu Kinta, to undergo a month-long psychiatric evaluation. 


The court fixed Sept 20 for mention.
