A 16-YEAR-OLD was ordered not to bathe for days by her jealous boyfriend, who wanted to ward off other men who were interested in her, reported Harian Metro.
The teen from Segamat was also forbidden from wearing lipstick and other make-up while in the presence of others.
If she went against his orders, she would be beaten up by her 21-year-old unemployed boyfriend.
“Since going out with him for a year, he had beaten me three times,” said the victim, who only wanted to be identified as Ani.
She stayed with him out of love and because he promised to change.
But the last straw was when he slapped and punched her face for attending a birthday party of a boy at her school.
He confronted her outside her home at Pekan Jabi when she got home at 11.30pm on Tuesday night.
“I was afraid he would hurt me again, so I ran into the house and told my mother,” she Ani.
Ani subsequently lodged a police report about the incident and investigations are under way.
> Answering an urgent call of nature at a petrol station caused a man to lose 5kg of gold, which he left in his Perodua Kancil, reported Kosmo!.
The victim was transporting the gold from a factory in Butterworth to his cousin’s jewellery shop in Parit Buntar, Perak, when the incident occurred.
The incident happened at 8pm on Tuesday when the victim left the car for just five minutes to use the toilet near Seberang Jaya.
The 26-year-old victim was shocked to find the front passenger window smashed and the bag containing RM650,000 worth of gold missing when he returned.
CCTV recordings showed two men on a motorcycle arriving just after the victim left the car and taking the bag. Police have ruled out the involvement of the victim after taking statements from him and the owner of the jewellery shop.
