A sad and heart-breaking story how a mother could actually locked her seven-year-old daughter alone at home without any food and left.

According to reports, the little girl was left alone in Taman Hijrah, Kangar, Perlis since last Wednesday and was only rescued by police five days later.

Police said they had to break down the door after being alerted by neighbours who heard the child crying.

They have also since detained the 31-year-old mother.

The child's parents are divorced and the mother just walked out on the child without leaving anything for her.

Neighbours who heard the child's cries managed to give her some food through a window.

"However, they decided to lodge a police report when they saw no signs of the mother returning," said police.

The child was immediately rushed to the Kangar Hospital where her condition has since stabilised.

She is now under the care of the Welfare Department while investigations are carried out under the Child Act 2001.
