Yesterday, Shah Alam district police chief Assistant commissioner Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim was reported to have said that a college lecturer died, believed to have been hit with a dumbbell by her husband in an incident at a house in Jalan Sungai Congkak, Shah Alam early yesterday.

He said police initially received a report at 5.33am from the suspect claiming that his wife had a seizure and subsequently took her to Shah Alam Hospital as she was unconscious.

He said an examination by the doctor found that the 33-year-old woman had injuries in several parts of her body, and further investigation revealed that the victim was beaten by the suspect at their home out of jealousy before being taken to the hospital.
