Last Sunday, 23 July, a husband allegedly beat his 38-year-old wife to death at home before taking her lifeless body to a hospital in Kajang

The shocking incident came to light during an examination conducted by a nurse at the Kajang hospital.

According to the Kajang district police chief ACP Mohd Zaid Hassan, the police received a distressing report about the incident on Sunday at 12.15am, and began investigating the tragic event.

The victim was confirmed dead on arrival.

"The victim was brought by her husband, and after being informed that his wife had passed away, he disappeared. An initial examination by medical personnel revealed evidence of injuries and bruises all over the victim's body, which was then handed over to Serdang Hospital for post-mortem purposes," he said.

The post-mortem results revealed that the victim suffered fatal internal injuries caused by a blunt object. There were also numerous other injuries on her body, further highlighting the severity of the assault.

"Investigations indicate that the incident is believed to have occurred in an apartment in Sungai Long. However, the motive behind the murder is still under investigation," Zaid said, adding that the case is being investigated for murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries death as punishment.

The victim's younger brother shared that she never talked about her domestic life or if she was being abused, as the family rarely saw her

The brother, Azmir Alias, revealed that the family's last meeting with the victim took place during the previous Hari Raya Aidilfitri, during which she gave no indication of the abuse she was enduring.

Describing his late sister as "quiet and reserved," Azmir told Harian Metro that she only shared basic things, such as her husband's work that required him to travel frequently.

"The deceased was a quiet person; she only spoke when necessary and never talked about her family life," he shared, adding that the family had not seen the husband, identified by the police as 32-year-old Mohamed Imran Mohamed, since the couple's marriage six years ago.

Azmir expressed bewilderment over the husband's behaviour, as he had even forbidden the victim from visiting their mother's house, and a previous attempt by their mother to visit her was met with hostility.

"Once, our mother went to the [my late sister's] house, but the man chased her away," he said.

The tragedy leaves two young children, aged six and three, now under the care of the Department of Social Welfare Malaysia (JKM)

The family is eager to apply for custody of both kids to ensure their well-being and future.

"As a family, we want to apply to take care of both of the deceased's children," the brother shared.

Meanwhile, the police are trying to track down the husband

He was last known to reside in Apartment Sutera Pines, Jalan Sutera Pines, Sungai Long, Kajang.

"Police are trying to trace the husband to assist in the investigation. Anyone with information regarding this case can contact the nearest police station to help with the investigation," Mohd Zaid said.
