A Queensland mum is demanding answers after police tasered her teenage daughter, who has cerebral palsy, at her Townsville school.

The mother says she cannot fathom why police acted the way they did when her daughter has significant physical limitations and suffers seizures.

The mother will lodge a complaint with police after her daughter was "tasered".

Police say the girl began damaging property and lunged at an officer after they went to her Mundingburra school to speak to her about a separate matter on Thursday.

“She’s got cerebral palsy, she has seizures, and she’s only got the use of one hand and she’s not very good on her legs, so why taser her,” the mother has told the ABC.
