The quote, “Love is the most dangerous thing in the world” may be a little bit too fitting for this case.
According to The Star, a man stabbed his ex-wife with a screwdriver when she refused his request for them to reconcile. The incident had happened yesterday evening (24th July) at a restaurant in Pantai Air Tawar, Jerteh.
Besut police chief Supt Mohd Zamri Mohd Rowi said the incident had occurred at around 4.35 pm. Following the incident, the 28-year-old victim was rushed for treatment at Besut Hospital.
As stated by Zamri, the victim, who worked as a maid, was approached by the 31-year-old suspect while working at Pantai Air Tawar.
“Angry when the victim refused to consider reconciliation, the suspect stabbed her with a screwdriver on the face and hand.”

Sigh, some people just can’t move on and take no as an answer.
