MALAYASIA: A man poured hot water over his sister-in-law, poked her with a heated fork and whipped her with a dog chain in a bid to teach her a lesson for what the man termed were her 'wayward ways'.
The girl was admitted in a hospital and is undergoing treatment in Malaysia. The doctors were unable to give a list of her injuries as they were busy trying to save her, reports Harian Metro.
The teenager's only crime was that she used to return home late at night after socialising. However, a hectic social life cannot be reason enough for the 40-year-old man to torture in such an inhuman way.
He was nabbed by the police after the authorities were tipped-off by the village headman.
The case has been referred to the Social Welfare Department for investigation under the Child Act 2001.
