1 Mins read

A 39-year-old Malaysian fishmonger has been jailed by a Magistrate Court and told to pay an RM1,000 (S$329) fine after hitting his wife’s head in a fit of rage when he read WhatsApp messages on her phone.

V. N. Loganathan was accused of using criminal force on his wife G. Anita Davi, 36, at an apartment unit in Damansara Damai, a suburb in Selangor at about 2 pm on Jan 18.

The charge, under Section 352A of the Penal Code, carries imprisonment for a term which may extend to six months or a fine of up to RM2,000, or both, upon conviction.

He pleaded guilty after the charge was read out before magistrate M. Barath on Friday.

Loganathan, who was unrepresented, asked for leniency saying that he was the sole breadwinner of the family.

“My three children aged 14,12, and 6 are still schooling. I only sell fish for a living. My wife is unemployed, ” he said.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Shanur Farrahin Shapri urged the court to impose a deterrent sentence to serve as a lesson.

The magistrate handed down the sentence and ordered Loganathan to serve another month in jail if he fails to pay the fine.

According to the statement of facts, Loganathan and his wife got into an argument after he saw WhatsApp messages from a male friend on her phone.

He became angry and hit the back of her head and hands.

His wife left the house and lodged a police report on the incident.
