A FOUR-MONTH pregnant woman was punched and kicked by her husband after she asked him to look for two types of “rare” food in the middle of the night.
Harian Metro reported that the woman, aged 28, had developed a craving for various types of delicacies and fruits which were difficult to find.
Previously, the husband, in his 30s, had obliged her requests but this time his emotions got the better of him and he lost his temper.
In the latest incident on Tuesday, the woman again pestered her husband to look for buah kelur and lempuk durian when he returned to their house in Bandar Baru Sentul from work at 11pm.
“The husband blew his top and scolded his wife.
“The couple argued for a good 20 minutes before he lost control of his anger and started punching and kicking his wife,” a source said.
The wife contacted a friend to send her to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a check-up before lodging a police report.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan confirmed the incident, adding that an investigation would be carried out.
