Police in Napak are holding a 31 Year old woman for burning the hands of her 6 year old daughter.

Christine Abura, resident of Lokitelaemun village, Lokali Parish, Matany Sub County burnt the hands of her the Anna Modo for eating food before it was served to all the family members.

The alleged torture happened  on Tuesday 5th Cotober when Abura subjected her daughter to torture and thereafter locked her inside a house where she fed the girl with sunflower seeds for fear that it might come to the attention of police and other authorities.

The police Relations Officer for Mt Moroto, Michael Longole says community members who knew what was happening tipped off one of the area community workers who later called the police to rescue the starving child who was also in pain because of burn wounds.

"The girl has been under torture  from the cruel mother, we got her starving and in serious pain because of the burns and being locked in the house,” said Longole on Friday evening.

He said police quickly responded and the mother of two was apprehended and is in police custody and will be charged to court appropriately.

It's not the first time that this woman has done this to her children according to neighbours, and  similar offense was witnessed when she broke the leg of her elder boy identified as Joseph Losike who is now about 8 years old.

Police has warned the community in general against child abuse and   told them to refrain from inflicting pain on young children either physically, emotionally or psychologically as it will also get them to be prosecuted.
