A resident who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “She is fond of maltreating and abusing the child for no reason. On Friday, she beat up the little child and put her bum bum on an electric cooking hot plate.
“She teaches in a local school at Bariga and the school is owned by her boyfriend’s mum, so she lives with both the boyfriend and his mom.
“The father of the child is nowhere to be found. He denied the child when she gave birth. The child suffered severe burns and is in so much pain.”
