SINGAPORE – A woman was found guilty on Monday (Sept 28) for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by means of a heated substance on her ‘cheating’ boyfriend’s private parts.

Back on July 4, 2017, 50-year old Zareena Begum P A M Basheer Ahamed invited her then-boyfriend over to her flat to watch some television.

A report on CNA says she and her long-time boyfriend had first started dating in 2006 while the man was still married.

Over the years, the two had numerous fights, arguments and breakups, as well as a number of cheating allegations.

Reportedly the man had even promised to marry her, yet supposedly he was also attempting to reconcile with his ex-wife.

On the horrible July evening in 2017, the man had been sleeping on the couch after the couple had shared a meal. When he fell asleep, Ms Ahamed decided to go through his phone.

While the couple had accused each other of cheating all throughout the 11 years they were dating on and off. She previously found evidence of one particular woman with whom the boyfriend was allegedly cheating since 2015.

Ms Ahamed had also seen her ex-boyfriend with the person on January 12, 2017, at the HarbourFront Centre going through immigration together.

The search through the man’s mobile phone revealed evidence of texting between the boyfriend and the woman, This supposedly sent Ms Ahamed into a rage.

This is when she decided “to teach him a lesson that he would never forget,” by pouring a mug of boiling water over the man’s groin at around 1.30 a.m.

The man said he woke up to feelings of “pain and heat,” immediately shaking off the excess water and taking off his pants and underwear to find his thighs bright red.

After grabbing a towel to cover himself, he asked Ms Ahamed “why did you do this to me?” to which the suspect replied with “serve you right.”

The man suffered second and third-degree burns on at least 12 per cent of his total body surface, and he ended up being hospitalised for 26 days. Although he was given 39 days of medical leave, the incident left him unable to work for six months.

Later he described the incident as the “worst pain” he had ever experienced in his life, rating it 10/10 on the pain scale.

After the incident, the suspect purportedly told the man to ask his “new girlfriend to get the aloe vera” to help him with the burns.

In Court, Ms Ahamed’s lawyers claimed it was an accident. She even said that she was going to drink the boiling water but had accidentally spilled it on the man.

She told the court, “I drink—I—I love boiling water. I drink boiling water, yes. Even when I go to restaurant, I will ask the water later, hot boiling water after the meal usually.”

The district judge rejected Ms Ahamed’s defence and found her guilty for her crime. She is set to return to court on October 20, 2020, for sentencing and is currently out on bail.

As punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by means of a heated substance, she can be jailed for life, or jailed for up to 15 years and fined.

Because she is a woman, under Singapore law she cannot be canned. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
