PARIT (Bernama): YouTube sensations M. Sugu and S. Pavithra have declined any form of help or counselling from the Perak Social Welfare Department (JKM) for the time being over their family problems.
State Women Development, Family and Social Welfare Committee chairman Datuk Dr Wan Norashikin Wan Noordin said this was related to the Kuala Kangsar district JKM officer who held a meeting at the couple’s residence on July 22.
"S. Pavithra told the officer that she does not need any form of assistance or guidance so far and asked to be given space and not to be disturbed because she was confident of resolving and managing their family crises.
"However, the department will always monitor the progress by contacting the couple and is ready to help them anytime if they need any form of assistance, ” she said.
Wan Norashikin said this to reporters after presenting donations to registered care centres at the Parit Perak Welfare Organisation for Orphans and the Poor in Kampung Tengah here on Monday (July 27).
It was reported that police had arrested Sugu who was allegedly drunk and armed with a sickle when looking for his brother-in-law in connection with a family problem outside the maternity ward of the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital here on Tuesday (July 21) evening.
This stemmed from a misunderstanding between the suspect and his wife over a ceremony which took place the day before.
On July 24, Sugu pleaded not guilty at the Sessions Court here to a charge of having in his possession a dangerous weapon and causing injury to his wife using a mobile phone and the back of a sickle last Tuesday, but Pavithra said she had since forgiven her husband. – Bernama
