Acid Rumour: Police free accused mother

Acid Rumour
Military police in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town on Wednesday released a woman who an official said had been wrongly accused of pouring acid on her 2-year-old son. The 36-year-old woman was allowed to return home after being arrested on Tuesday at a market close to the Thai border and detained overnight for questioning by police, said Ork Borin, deputy provincial military police commander. “There was a rumour that the mother had doused acid on her child, but in fact her son had the burn mark from an unrelated injury suffered a year ago,” he said.
