5 month old child with abnormal movements and developmental regression

A 5-month-old full-term male patient, born of a non-consanguineous marriage was presented with following parental concerns about abnormal movements and developmental regression. Development halted at 4 months of age. The patient increasingly showed episodes with flickering of eyes and tonic movements followed by postictal behaviour. He stopped fixing and following, stopped responding to loud noises, stopped reaching out for objects and had stopped babbling or making any noises, all of which he had been doing previously. Plz suggest the diagnosis?
