“After that, the victim was locked in their apartment and her phone was also taken away by her husband to prevent his wife from getting help.
“However, the wife has asked their front neighbours to call the police,” he said.
Shamsul said that police had come to their house and released the woman before she was taken to the police station to make a report.
Her husband was then arrested at 5:15 pm on the same day.
The suspect admitted to being abusive towards his wife and further checks found that he has a past record of criminal cases.
The case is being investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code and Section 18A of the Domestic Violence Act 1994.
