The 41-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday and summoned on a brief court hearing on Friday, where he was remanded in custody for the next week. Reports confirm that the man’s wife has also been charged with similar offences as well. The court placed an exceptional publication ban on the case, due to which, the identity of both suspects cannot be revealed publicly. Police has labeled the case as one of the worst cases of child abuse ever seen. It is informed that the young boy was shackled and handcuffed in the basement of an Ottawa home for months. The boy was eventually discovered on Tuesday and is now receiving treatment in a hospital. It was revealed during the investigation that the 11-year-old child was found wandering in the open in the residential neighborhood.
