Magistrate Sharda Shienha Mohd Suleiman meted out the fine, in default three months in jail, against Syazwan Izzuddin Samsudin, 30, who pleaded guilty to the charge.

The man was charged with voluntarily causing hurt to Norfarhana Azlin Azman, 24, by hitting the woman on the left side of the face, arm, neck and body with his hands at about 10pm at the entrance to a clinic in Taman Cempaka in the Melaka Tengah district on Aug 14 last year.
