Father In Penang Threw Hot Water On His 35-Year-Old Son Over Money
Earlier this week, a 35-year-old man was scalded with hot water by his own father following a quarrel over insurance money
According to the victim, the incident happened on Tuesday, 7 May, at 6.30pm when he had gone to his father’s house at Jalan Kaki Bukit, Gelugor, to ask for RM30,000.
However, the 66-year-old father refused, giving the victim RM10. The father then splashed hot water on him when he went close to the gate.
Following the incident, the victim lodged a police report
NST Online reported that in the police report, the son said his mother had bought insurance protection and savings. His mother passed away in 2005.
According to the report, once the insurance policy matured, the father claimed the policy and distributed the money to all his children except for the victim.
The victim had since been asking for his share of money from his father.
This was the second time the father had done this to his son
After the incident on Tuesday, the victim went to Penang Hospital to get treatment.
Police arrested the father on Thursday, 9 May
“We have detained the 66-year-old father and he admitted to committing the act. He is now released on bail,” Northeast district police chief Assistant Commissioner Che Zaimani Che Awang was quoted as saying by NST Online on Friday, 10 May.
