They were strangers who appeared in the dock beside each other in court yesterday. But both men had one thing in common – they were wife-beaters.
And they had pulled their wives out of bed by the hair before assaulting them.
Ridduan Jaafar, 25, a restaurant assistant manager, pinned his wife against a wall and threatened her with a knife after she rejected his advances for sex. He was jailed four months. He had become jealous after seeing a Facebook post from his wife’s male colleague to her.
The other man, Pravin Kumar, 35, who had beaten his wife after getting drunk,was jailed for three months.
