“I was mad because my 8-month pregnant wife and 2-year-old kid was in the car”, he said.

Following his case, the man named Zaim was reprimanded and brought to court today (June 9). According to local newspaper Sin Chew Daily, the 29-year-old man faced 2 charges from Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation, and Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt.

During mitigation, the 29-year-old factory supervisor who earns a mere RM4,000 salary pled for a light punishment as he needs to take care of his pregnant wife and young kid. Deputy Public Prosecutor Geetha Jora Singh asked for the court to impose a hefty punishment as it would serve as a reminder to others who commit the same offence.

Prior to sentencing, Magistrate Siti Hanum Mohmad Sah said that every action has got its consequences and probed for locals to always think of their families first before making any actions. Following that, Zaim was sentenced by court to serve 7 days in prison, with the sentence beginning today.
