- A furious mom has chained her daughter to a lamp post for missing classes
- Girl stood there for over an hour until the police arrived
- She had nothing but the bottle of water by herself
People have gone mad about the photo which shows an 8-year-old girl chained to a lamp post. Her mother chained her as a punishment because the girl was playing truant from school.
The girl is in tears as she stands next to the pole, her leg chained to it. She only has a bottle of water by herself. She was seen covering her mouth and having a sad expression on her face after her mom left her in a Kuala Lumpur car park.
Many people walked by and saw her; most of them wanted to help. However, she was chained with two padlocks and it took more than an hour for the police to come.
As she told the police, her mother punished her because she missed her mandarin classes in Kuala Lumpur's school.
One of the witnesses said:
There is such a thing as tough love but this is taking it too far. The girl was quite clearly upset and didn't know what to do. She was sucking her thumb and had tears in her eyes. We reported it to police and we hope that they look into the family further to make sure that the girl is not harmed again.
