DHAKA, Bangladesh – A Bangladeshi man who forcibly shaved his wife’s head after finding a hair in his breakfast has been arrested, police said on Tuesday (Oct 8), as rights groups warned that violence against women was rising in the conservative Muslim nation.

Police raided a village in the north-western district of Joypurhat and arrested Bablu Mondal, 35, after villagers told officers about the incident.

“He found a human hair on the rice and milk breakfast his wife prepared for him,” local police chief Shahriar Khan told AFP.

“He became angry seeing the hair and blamed the wife. He then took a blade and forcibly shaved the head of the wife,” he said.

Police chief Khan said Bablu was charged with “voluntarily causing grievous hurt”, an offence that carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in jail, and also for “outraging the modesty” of his 23-year-old wife.

Activists say the incident highlights growing repression of women in Bangladesh despite laws to protect them from abuse and sexual assault.

According to local rights group Ain o Salish Kendra, there were an average three rapes a day in the first six months of the year.

The organisation that said of the 630 women raped between January and June, 37 were killed after the assault while seven others took their own life.

There were also 105 instances of attempted rape.

In April, massive protests broke out after a 19-year-old schoolgirl was burned to death on the orders of her headteacher after she reported him for sexually harassing her.

A 42-year-old woman was arrested after being seen crouching on a window ledge at Block 227 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh on Monday morning (July 29).

Stomp contributor Husain, a resident in the vicinity, said he was leaving for school at around 7am when he noticed a commotion across his block.

A video that he took shows a woman perched on the 16th-floor ledge while she held on to pipe socket holders outside the window.

At least four rescuers can be seen on the roof of the block.

Husain told Stomp: “I first saw a fire engine and two police cars parked below the block.

“When I looked across, the woman was hanging outside the window on a very narrow ledge.

“Thanks to the outstanding bravery of the commandos and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers, the woman was safely brought inside the house.”

SINGAPORE – Two drivers were arrested for allegedly getting into a brawl at Changi on Wednesday (July 31) morning.

The police said they were alerted to a call for assistance at Changi South Avenue 3 at about 8.10am.

A 23-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were arrested for fighting in public.

The police are investigating the incident.

In a video that is making the rounds on Facebook, the drivers can be seen shoving, shouting and hurling vulgarities at each other as they stand on the road, in between their vehicles.

A passer-by tries to break up their brawl as he says to them: “It’s only an accident… Stop fighting, call the police.”

The female driver picks up a rod from her truck and uses it to hit the windows of the male driver’s car.

The male driver then approaches the people who are filming the video, before they have a heated discussion over who started the fight.

It is unclear if the drivers were involved in an accident prior to the altercation.

The police said that the drivers will be charged in court on Thursday.

The police have arrested Siti Wakidah, 30, for allegedly killing her son, identified only as 6-year-old F, in Boyolali, East Java, after the boy’s body was exhumed and signs of abuse were found.

“The police exhumed the grave to confirm the cause of death. Local residents who took care of the body initially found signs of abuse, such as bruises all over the body,” Boyolali Police criminal investigation unit chief First Insp. Mulyanto said on Wednesday.

The boy was found dead at his home in Tanduk village, Ampel, on July 11. One of the neighbours, Subroto, 45, said the boy’s mother came to his house in a panic and said her son was dead.

He said Siti did not elaborate on her son’s cause of death. At the time, the boy’s father, Iwan Sri Widadi, 45, was away for work.

“At the time Mbak Siti said that her son fell. Local residents took care of the body. After the boy’s father came home from work, we buried the body in Semarang,” Subroto said.

He said after burying the body, locals discussed the possible cause of F’s death as they had noticed bruises all over the body. Local residents were also suspicious because the boy’s mother had answered vaguely when asked how her son had died.

Local residents then reported the case to the police.

Boyolali Police chief Sr. Adj. Comr. Kusumo Wahyu Bintoro said Siti had confessed that she had often abused her son, from yelling, pinching and punching to banging the boy’s head against a cupboard.

“The autopsy showed that the victim’s cause of death was bleeding and trauma to the head. We are questioning both parents. At this stage, the mother is the only suspect,” Kusumo said.
