A woman who was seen arguing with the police in Malabe, on a video which went viral today has been arrested and remanded.
Police media spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera said that the woman was arrested for having a child on her lap while driver a car.
The woman was seen having a heated argument with traffic police after she was stopped over the offence and her driving licence was taken.
She demanded her driving licence back and kept verbally abusing the policemen and everything was recorded on a mobile phone by a bystander.
Gunasekera said that the husband of the woman had told the police that she was mentally unstable and that would have led to her outburst at the traffic police.
However the police spokesman said that the husband of the woman was also arrested for giving his car to the woman if she was mentally unstable as she claims.
The police spokesman said that it is an offence to allow someone who is not mentally stable to drive a vehicle on a public road. (Colombo Gazette)
