KUALA LUMPUR – It was not a “happy ending” at all for a foreign woman who invited a man over for a sex tryst when her “guest” decided to rob her instead.
Chinese citizen Wu Keying suffered serious injuries when she was stabbed in the abdomen and hand during a struggle with her intended lover. She then lost consciousness.
Today, Didi Khairul Salleh Abuzar was sentenced to seven years in prison and three strokes of the rotan for causing grievous hurt to Wu while robbing her two months ago.
Judge Rohatul Akmar Abdullah meted out the sentence after Didi pleaded guilty to the offence at the Sessions Court here.
Didi had been charged with committing the offence at a unit in Bangunan Wisma Indah in Wangsa Maju at 6.15am on Sept 30.
The offence falls under Section 394 of the Penal Code which carries a maximum 20-year jail sentence, fine and caning upon conviction.
In pleading for leniency, Didi said he was remorseful.
“I am the sole breadwinner for my family and have to take care of my sick mother. I promise not to make the same mistake again,” he said.
However, deputy public prosecutor Kamarul Aris Kamalluddin pressed for a deterrent sentence, saying that the accused had committed a serious offence.
“The victim had suffered serious injuries and the court must consider public interest in this case,” he said.
Rohatul ordered Didi’s jail time to run from the date of arrest.
