KOTA BELUD: A 34-year-old man beat his wife in anger at Kampung Linau here yesterday because he suspected that she was having an affair via Facebook.
The 27-year-old woman sustained bruises on her eyes and right shoulder.
In the 7am incident, the woman was preparing breakfast in the kitchen and checking her Facebook account on her mobile phone at the same time.
Her husband had asked for her phone as he wanted to see the contents of the messages in his wife’s Facebook account.
He grabbed the phone and smashed it on the floor. He then asked her to log onto her Facebook account from his phone.
Suspecting that his wife was keeping a secret, the husband started beating wife after she refused to show him her social media account.
