Woman denies trying to kill 21-month-old daughter

MELAKA: A single mother was charged in the Ayer Keroh Sessions Court here with attempting to murder her 21-month-old daughter.

The 32-year-old woman, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge before judge Elesabet Paya Wan.

The woman, who is unemployed, allegedly tried to kill her baby by throwing the girl into a drain at Lorong Pandan here at 8.40pm last July 13.

The charge, under Section 307 of the Penal Code, provides an imprisonment for up to 10 years and fine, if found guilty.

The woman is also charged under Section 31 (1) (a) of the Child Act with ill-treating the girl at 9.40pm at the same time, place and date, to which she pleaded guilty.

The offence provides a maximum fine of RM20,000 or imprisonment for up to 10 years, or both, upon conviction.

The woman was allowed bail of RM12,000 on both charges and the court set Aug 26 for case management and sentencing of the respective cases.

In the same court, Nur Anati Kamarudin, 28, was fined RM2,000 after she pleaded guilty to a charge of disseminating false news on Twitter early last month.

She was charged with using the Twitter network service with intention to cause fear or anxiety to the public by spreading false news on the death of Covid-19 cases at a factory here.

The offence was allegedly committed at premises in Jalan AP 3 Taman Ara Permai, Batu Berendam here at 9am last June 3.

The charge was framed under Section 4(1) Emergency (Essential Powers) Ordinance 2021. — Bernama
