Ajit was a non-verbal twelve-year-old when social workers became concerned that his mother was not taking good care of him. Social services called a meeting to talk to her about the boy's care, but she would not cooperate with them. Instead, fearing that social services would take her son away, she went home and forced Ajit to drink a cup of bleach.
Ajit died of multiple organ failure from ingesting the caustic liquid. His mother was sentenced to seven years.
