Woman pleads not guilty to throwing hot water on teen son

MELAKA: A 37-year-old woman has pleaded not guilty at the Sessions Court here to a charge of causing grievous injury to her teen son by splashing hot water on him – supposedly after he used up her mobile phone data allocation.

The plea of the accused, Noor Izana Isa, was read before Judge Mohd Sabri Ismail on Tuesday (Sept 26).

Based on the charge sheet, the offence was allegedly committed at the government quarters in Sungai Udang here at 2.56am on June 27, 2022.

The charge was framed under Section 326 of the Penal Code, which provides imprisonment for up to 20 years and a fine, or whipping, if found guilty.

The boy is the second of her four children.

The victim's classmate discovered stains on his school uniform due to his injuries when he was in school.

The classmate told his mother about the injuries, who then lodged a police report.

The prosecution was carried out by Deputy Public Prosecutor Muhamad Nazrin Ali Rahim while the accused was unrepresented.

No bail was granted and the court fixed Oct 26 as the next mention date.
