KTV hostess’ eyeball pops out after stiletto-wearing colleague stomps on her face

A part-time hostess at Club One KTV Boutique in Jalan Sultan was blinded after her eyeball popped out when a colleague repeatedly kicked her in the face while wearing 14.5 centimeter stiletto heels, during a brawl.

The court heard this Tuesday that the two hostesses had a tense working relationship prior to the scuffle, which occurred on 8 Oct 2015. On that day, 30-year-old Nur Lena Rahmat and 28-year-old Siti Zahara Afifi Abdul Karim got into an argument about a set of braces Nur Lena’s friend had planned to sponsor for Siti Zahara’s sister.

Nur Lena’s friend and Siti Zahara’s sister were in a relationship, but the friend still wanted to pay for the braces after his relationship with Siti Zahara’s sister ended. Nur Lena reportedly tried to persuade her friend against bearing the financial cost now that his relationship was over, and Siti Zahara was upset about her colleague’s interference in the matter.

What started as a disagreement at 3.20am quickly escalated into a violent skirmish. Both women fell to the ground, where Siti Zahara began kicking in Nur Lena’s direction repeatedly. Siti Zahara kept kicking even when her stiletto heel hit Nur Lena’s eyelid twice, before eventually piercing the victim’s left eye, causing her eyeball to pop out.

The court heard that Nur Lena shouted, “I cannot see, I cannot see,” before she was conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where her left eye had to be removed.

Besides losing her left eye, Nur Lena also suffered temporal hemianopia in her right eye, and doctors discovered that her sight in her remaining eye is limited to the nasal part of her visual field.

Nearly two full years after the violent altercation, Siti Zahara was convicted on Tuesday of causing grievous hurt to Nur Lena due to a rash act that endangered the personal safety of others. She will return to court on 31 Oct, before being sentenced.


Siti Zahara could be jailed for a maximum of four years and fined up to $10,000 for committing the offence.
