A policewoman has been arrested after she whipped her stepdaughter(9) with an electric cord.

Shelita Zulu stationed at Queens Park Police Station thrashed her stepdaughter after she had a fight with another minor child who also stays at the same house. Instead of disciplining the two, the cop assaulted her stepdaughter.

The minor’s mother discovered the assault and took her to the hospital for treatment. The matter was reported to the police leading to Zulu’s arrest.

B Metro reports that Zulu has since appeared in court facing a charge of ill-treating a child. She has pleaded not guilty. The matter was postponed to 22 July for trial.
