KUALA LUMPUR: For her, love did not blossom in all the nine years that she knew him.
The 35-year-old singer claimed that the “boyfriend,” a senior officer in one of the ministries, continued to seek her affections, even to the point of harassing her when she performed at shows.
Her patience ran out in July last year as she was helping out at a friend’s stall in Taman Miharja, Cheras when the 49-year-old officer came.
They had an argument.
It ended when she threw a pot of boiling fish curry at him. She must now answer charges in a magistrate’s court.
Police sources, in confirming the case, said the officer suffered burns on his head and body and was warded at the Gleneagles Medical Centre for a week.
They said the singer, a well-known figure in the local Tamil music scene from Perak, had made nine reports against the officer who is a bachelor.
In the reports, she claimed that her “stalker” had harassed her in Klang, Rawang, Brickfields and Cheras at venues where she performed and where she lived.
Sources said she told the man off several times but he continued to pursue her.
He has been transferred to another ministry and given a new position.
Meanwhile, she has to face charges of causing grievous hurt on provocation under Section 335 of the Penal Code which carries a jail term of up to four years, or a fine of up to RM4,000 or both.
