BANGKOK – The mother of five-year old twin girls has been arrested after a two-minute video clip showing her beating up one of her twin daughters was uploaded in the social media and quickly went viral.

The footage shows the woman pulling the hair of  her 5 year-old daughter girl and pointing a knife on her face. Then the woman uses the handle of a broom to hit the girl three times while threatening to use the knife to cut her tongue.

Police arrested Tassanee Kaewpila, 35, on Sunday following an outcry on social media over disturbing footage of the abuse.

The woman told police that her twin girls were raised by her mother-in-law in Surin province until about eight months ago when her husband took the girls back to their own home in Samut Prakan for upbringing.

After the incident, the father of the twin girls said he would have them sent back to his mother in Surin.

Pol Col Vichit Boonchinwutthikul, superintendent of Bangkaew police, said the two twin girls would undergo medical checkup to find out whether they suffer serious wounds from the alleged beatings.

Tassanee told officers that raising the twins proved too difficult for her, and she lost her temper, police said.

“The mother was sorry,” Col. Pichit said. “She didn’t know that it would escalate into a big issue like this.”
