A teacher, attached to a leading school in Wallahagoda in Gampola has been arrested yesterday for brutally beating her mother-in-law, police said.

The teacher was arrested after a video circulated in social media showing the teacher mercilessly beating another woman.

Accordingly, the teacher was arrested following a complaint received by the Gampola Police.

The video shows the teacher was first  attacking the victim with a knife. Then the beaten woman was seen falling on the ground when the former pushed her.

The mother-in-law reported to have made several  complains to the police on many previous occasions over similar attacks by her daughter-in-law.

It was reported that the police had warned the suspect on those occasions and released the daughter-in-law.

    The mother-in-law is making an aggressive move towards the daughter-in-law and the daughter-in-law seems to have acted in self-defence. The police should look at the video clip and take a decision rather than acting on emotional complaints.

    She is not fit for the noble profession, please, HANG HER TO DEATH or MURDER HER UNDER POLICE CUSTODY. Serving any sentence is seemingly no use.

    what was the son doing?

    When the mother becomes the mother-in-law, she becomes more protective of the son. The main reason is that the mother thinks the son is supposed to be the caretaker of her. The mother thinks the son will be more attached to the wife. The only way the mother can keep the son on her side is by making false accusations. Mothers should step away from their son's lives...
