A 35-year-old woman of Ba has been charged with one count of Act With Intent to Cause Grievous Harm after she allegedly threw a hot iron at her 9-year-old son.
She appeared before the Lautoka Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
It is alleged the mother of seven was disappointed with her son for coming home late from school on several occasions and as a result threw the hot iron at him.
