KUALA LUMPUR: A market worker was sentenced to two months’ jail for hurting his female relative, whom he accused of not paying his salary for more than three months.

Muhammad Salem Abdullah Saied, 21, yesterday pleaded guilty before magistrate Nur Azura Murah to hurting the 35-year-old woman at her house in Taman Seri Murni here at around 12.15am on Aug 8.

He was also sentenced another two months for threatening the relative.

Both sentences are to run concurrently beginning Aug 9, the day he was nabbed.

Salem was said to have punched the ­woman’s arm before threatening her with a parang.

“I work for my relative. She has not been paying my salary for more than three months and she chased me out of the house when I asked about the salary.

“She also cursed at my mum,” he told the court.

In pleading for leniency, Salem said he was the sole breadwinner in his family.

He also said he had to care for his mother and five siblings after his father passed away.
