The Mallakam Magistrate yesterday remanded the young man for 14 days after he slapped his girlfriend three times before the Magistrate.
The young man from Avarangal in Jaffna had an affair with a young woman residing in a house near his home for some time.
However, they fell off due to the young man’s indecent behaviour.
The woman had complained to the Achchuveli Police as the man had started harassing her after they broke off their affair.

The Police had later filed a case against the young man in the Mallakam Court.When the case was heard, the young man, who lost his temper due to a statement made by the woman, slapped her thrice in the presence of the Magistrate. The Mallakam Magistrate who suspended the hearing of the case, ruled that the young man be remanded for a period of 14 days on the charge of Contempt of Court and that the case will be taken up for hearing again on April 30.
