A Woman in Jaffna who beat up her infant child and got her brother to video it in order to send it to her estranged husband working overseas and demand money has been arrested.
Her brother and his friend who videoed beating up the child which went viral on social media too have been arrested by the police.
Soon after, the video went viral on social media sites, Nallur Divisional Secretary and officials of the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) informed the police to arrest the mother and two other individuals who recorded the footage.
The woman had returned to the country two months back, but her husband and Indian national had remained back in Kuwait. He had stopped sending money.
The woman, in the video, is seen caning the child while the child was screaming.
The arrested individuals are to be produced before Jaffna magistrate courts shortly.
