The 26-year-old woman suffered injuries to the left and right cheeks due to being slapped and pinched.

KUALA LUMPUR: A taxi driver who slapped and pinched a 26-year-old insurance company employee was fined RM1,000 by a Magistrate's Court here for causing hurt to her.

Magistrate Nur A'Minahtul Mardiah Md Nor also instructed Chong Kim Fah, 48, to pay the fine or jailed for two months in default.

The Magistrate meted out the sentence against Chong on Thursday after he admitted to causing injury to Tan Yun Ceat.

Chong was charged with causing hurt to Tan by hitting her using his hand at Jalan Angkosa off Jalan Nagasari here at about 7.40am on Nov 17.

Noor Svetlana Mohd Noor Nordin was the deputy public prosecutor while counsel Khairull Amin Abdullah appeared for Chong.

Tan lodged a report at the Dang Wangi police station, stating that the incident occurred when she was driving from Bandar Menjalara to Jalan Raja Chulan through Jalan Angsoka at 7.40am on Nov 17.

She said two cars were parked on the both sides of the road and when she drove ahead, a taxi suddenly came in front of her.

The taxi driver honked at her and when she refused to move her vehicle, he allegedly rammed her car. The taxi driver then came out of his vehicle and slapped her.
