Egypt's Public Prosecution ordered on Thursday to remand two youtubers and parents of a baby girl in custody for four days pending investigation over endangering and misusing their baby to gain money.

The prosecution also ordered to hand the baby girl to her grandmother after taking a pledge from her to take care of the baby girl, according to a statement by the Public Prosecution.

Earlier, the prosecution monitored several posts of social media demanding to investigate with the youtubers, Ahmed and Zeinab, who posted a video on their pages showing how they are terrifying their baby girl to gain more views and money.

Public Prosecution Hamada El-Sawy ordered to arrest them and investigate into the incident after receiving a complaint from the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood concerning the incident.

The prosecution also called on Egyptians to give priority to care for their children and to avoid the misuse of their children and stick to the principles of the Egyptian society, noting that it will take all measures required against such crimes.
