Sukabumi Police have arrested a woman for allegedly hiring four hitmen to murder her husband and stepson.

The husband, Edi Candra Purnama, 54, and stepson, M. Adi Pradana, 23, were found inside a burned-out car on Jl. Cidahu-Parakansalak, West Java, on Sunday.

Residents only noticed the corpses, which reportedly had been placed inside the car after the murder, once the fire had died down.

The woman, identified as AK, was arrested in Jakarta on Monday night. Another suspect, allegedly one of the hitmen, identified as KV, was undergoing treatment at Pertamina Hospital in Jakarta, police said without elaborating.

Sukabumi Police chief Sr. Adj. Comr. Nasriadi alleged the murder had been motivated by a domestic conflict and a debt issue.

“The suspect put the corpses inside the car and set it on fire to eliminate traces,” Nasriadi said on Tuesday as quoted by kompas.com.

We’ve all been through the times when we had no choice but to burn the midnight oil. You either had to rush a last-minute assignment for class or you had a work project due the next day. When it’s finally over, nothing feels better than to catch up on sleep and go back to your normal sleep patterns.

However, a woman from Samut Prakan, Thailand, didn’t get to “catch up on sleep” after working late night shifts and started developing a severe rash all over her body due to an imbalanced immune system.

Toq Taeq Kerdmee shared on Facebook about how she started working night shifts and couldn’t control the time she went to sleep. On some days, she would go home really late – sometimes only at 3am. She also said that she often gets insomnia after coming home from work, which doesn’t give her much time to rest.

This unhealthy sleeping pattern went on for three months until she started noticing a rash forming on her body.

“I thought it was just a bug bite, but in the morning, it started to spread more and more. So I went to the first doctor who also told me that it was just a bug bite,” she said, adding that she was given some anti-inflammatory medication and sent home.

However, Kerdmee’s rash became worse when she went to a friend’s birthday party in the evening and had some seafood. She went home with red blisters on her body which made it hard for her to fall asleep, but she reasoned that the medicine she took hadn’t taken effect yet.

In the morning, the blisters were still there, and she started developing a fever. So she went to another doctor, who told her that she was just having an allergic reaction to the fabric softener on her clothes.

The doctor then arranged for her to see a dermatologist, but as she was waiting for her appointment, she began having a fever again and blisters started appearing on her arms and legs. However, the third doctor also said that she was having an allergic reaction and gave her an injection to reduce the inflammation.

Kerdmee went back home to rest, thinking that she would recover from this horrible rash. But that night was the most haunting night of her life.

“I was not able to wear any clothes to sleep. My body felt like it was on fire and it felt like there were a million ants biting my body,” she said.

Her family brought her to the hospital where her fever started again, this time with a temperature of 40.2 degrees. Fortunately, her body was still able to respond to treatment. Her blood was disinfected, and she was confined in a separate room.

Her fever soon went away and red patches started forming on her skin. Doctors told her that her immune system had been affected due to severe sleep deprivation.

ANKARA, Turkey – The murder of a Turkish woman by her ex-husband in front of her daughter sparked outrage on Friday (Aug 23) after a video of the attack was published online.

“I don’t want to die,” Emine Bulut, covered in blood, is heard screaming to her 10-year-old child.

Her tearful daughter says: “Mum, please don’t die.”

The 38-year-old was stabbed to death in a cafe on Aug 18 by her former husband in the central Anatolian city of Kirikkale, according to the Hurriyet newspaper.

Bulut, who divorced her killer four years ago, later died in hospital.

Fedai Baran told police he killed his former wife with a knife he always carried with him, Turkish broadcaster NTV reported.

Her name was a worldwide trending topic on Twitter and “I don’t want to die” (#olmekistemiyorum) was widely quoted on social media.https://twitter.com/hashtag/Turkey?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Dozens of protesters on Friday gathered in the capital Ankara to denounce the murder.

“We are ready for any form of action. We will not be silent, we are not afraid and we will not obey. We will keep on our struggle until no women are murdered anymore,” protester Elif Sanci told AFP.

Another protester, Ilke Isik, blamed the government for its failure to stop violence against women.

“Neither Emine nor any of our comrades must die. Emine’s cry ‘I don’t want to die’ is the cry of all of us,” she said.

Officials, including Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul, were quick to condemn the murder after the video was published, along with celebrities and football clubs such as Besiktas.

“We expect the murderer to be punished in the most severe manner,” tweeted presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin.

The government said a team of psychologists was caring for the child.

Turkey has struggled to contain rising violence against women.

In the first six months of 2019, 214 women were killed by men, while 440 women were killed last year, according to the women’s rights group We Will Stop Femicide.

That was up from 409 women in 2017 and 121 in 2011.

While the government acknowledges the issue of violence against women, critics say not enough is being done to provide shelters and to address the broader problem of gender inequality which permeates society.

Turkey has ratified the Council of Europe’s 2011 Istanbul Convention – the world’s first binding instrument to prevent and combat violence against women – but activists say more needs to be done to put the laws into practice.

A young woman was threatened and pushed off her seat on a subway train in central China after she refused to offer it to an older male passenger.

The incident, which happened at around 6pm on Tuesday in Changsha, Hunan province, was filmed by another passenger, surnamed Jin, who provided the footage to the Xiaoxiang Morning Post.

In the footage, the man, wearing a yellow T-shirt and sunglasses, can be heard scolding the woman on the crowded train, which was about to depart from Nanhu Road station.

“It’s fine if you ask me to give up the seat for you because you are old, but does the seat have a name?” the woman, surnamed Fang, can be heard asking.

“There is no name on it but I need to sit!” the man responded before pushing her off the seat and occupying it. He can then be seen waving his umbrella at her and saying “I will beat you to death”.

The Xiaoxiang Morning Post reported that the man was later restrained by other passengers when he tried to hit Fang, while accusing her of “unreasonable” behaviour.

“Who is ‘unreasonable’? Don’t you know women are uncomfortable on some days?” Fang replied, before calling a family member to tell them about the incident. As she made the phone call the man left the train.

At the end of the footage a woman next to Fang can be heard defending her with the words: “Offering a seat should be a voluntary choice!”

Fang was accompanied by Jin to a police station on Tuesday night where she reported the incident, which is under investigation. She told the Xiaoxiang Morning Post she had been reluctant to give up her seat because she had her period and was feeling unwell.

Disputes between young people and older passengers over seats on public transport are not uncommon in China. In July last year, a video of an elderly man in Chengdu forcing a boy off his seat went viral on Weibo, the Twitter-like Chinese social media platform.

Woman jumps off building in KL with kids in tow

All she wanted were some eggs for breakfast, but Bethany Rosser ended up with burns on her face in the morning. 

The 22-year-old woman from England had microwaved the eggs on Aug 6 while following instructions she found on food website Delish.

She placed the eggs in a jug filled with water, added salt, and popped them into the microwave. Six minutes later, Rosser took the jug out of the appliance.

Little did she know that the eggs would suddenly explode in her face while checking if they were done, The Sun reported.

Despite the scare, Rosser managed to call the emergency hotline and splash cold water on her face.

While waiting for help, the young woman noticed a layer of skin had peeled off.

She was later taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham to treat her burns.

“I could feel my skin burning for hours afterwards — even while it was being treated in hospital,” Rosser said.

She also claimed that she was nearly blinded in her right eye. Her vision out of the swollen eye had been “very blurry” and it is currently unclear if the damage will be permanent.

The woman blamed her injuries on Delish’s instructions, which have since been taken down from the website.

Although the trick may have worked for some people, eggs heated in microwaves are known to explode due to the rapid heating that causes steam to build up under the yolk membrane and bursting open from the pressure. 

With Rosser’s story serving as a cautionary tale, the safest way to prepare hardboiled eggs is to cook them on the stove or use an egg boiler.

A man has been arrested for robbing and assaulting a woman as she walked alone to her hotel in the early hours of the morning in northwest China, local police said on Monday.

Closed-circuit television footage circulated online shows the woman being dragged and beaten to the ground by a man at the side of a road at about 2am on Saturday, near her hotel in Pucheng county, Shaanxi province.

He slaps and beats the woman, dragging her by the hair, then grabs her bag and steals her phone and cash.

The suspect, surnamed Wei, was arrested on Monday afternoon and admitted responsibility, police said, adding that the investigation was continuing.

“In the early morning of August 3, the police station received a call from a citizen, surnamed Liu, claiming that she was brutally robbed and beaten by a man,” Pucheng police said on Monday.

Liu, who works in a nearby karaoke bar, said she was walking to the hotel from work when the man suddenly attacked and robbed her. “I kept shouting for help, but there was no one around and he tried to keep me silent by beating me,” Shanghai-based news site Thepaper.cn quoted her on Monday as saying.

After the incident, Liu went back to her workplace and contacted the police. Her bag was later found in an alley, with her phone and 700 yuan (S$137.44) missing. Liu said her leg, jaw and neck were hurt during the ordeal but she was not seriously wounded.

“My wife cannot sleep well at night after the robbery incident, and the stolen 700 yuan was part of our children’s tuition fees,” Liu’s husband was quoted in the report as saying.

Liu said she was afraid to revisit the scene of the attack. “I feel uncomfortable when I watch the CCTV video,” she told Thepaper.

Last week, a young woman in central China suffered a serious injury when she was attacked and stabbed by a man with a fruit knife at around 1am. The suspect was arrested on Friday.

A 36-year-old woman attempted suicide by jumping off the Penang bridge yesterday (2 August). This incident occurred around 5pm when she drove to the bridge and climbed over the guardrails, according to Guang Ming Daily. She then jumped into the sea.

Since it was rush hour on the road, many people witnessed the incident and called for rescue. The marine police, fire department, as well as fishermen, were notified, and they immediately set out to search for the lady.

It was reported that the location that she took the leap was around 6.8km off Butterworth.

Fortunately, the rescue team managed to find her four hours after she jumped off. At 9pm, she was rescued and rushed to the hospital in Penang. The lady was identified to have come from Permatang Pauh, Penang.

We’re glad that the capable rescue team saved her, but we also hope that she’ll get the help she needs for her emotional and mental state.

You may wonder how it’s possible for one to just climb over the guardrails. Based on this video taken at the scene, the guardrails are pretty low and accessible.

If you’re feeling suicidal or need help now, please call Befrienders KL’s helpline at 03-7956 8145. It’s free and confidential, do not hesitate to call, especially when you’re feeling low and helpless.

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.”

Responding to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to a case of attempted suicide at the block at 6.40am.

The woman was conscious when taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital and was subsequently arrested in relation to the case.

A short video in which a woman driving a Porsche argued with a man driving a more modest car and slapped him before being slapped back harder has gone viral in China.

The incident on Tuesday in the southwestern city of Chongqing began when the woman tried to perform a U-turn but could not because the man driving behind did not give her enough space, website Pear Video reported.

The video shows the woman, wearing a white wide-rimmed hat and high-heeled shoes, getting out of her red Porsche to confront the driver of the Chery, a low-end make of car in China.

She is shown slapping him before being slapped back by him, sending her hat flying. She then took photographs of the scene of the disagreement, a witness told Pear Video.

“She blamed him for getting in the way,” the witness was quoted as saying. “She pointed here and there, and cursed him. She hit him after he replied with one sentence, and the man then hit her head.”

They were taken to a police station, the site reported.

The man’s wife, surnamed Chen, told Beijing News the woman had mocked her husband for being dressed in shoddy clothes and driving a “beggar’s car”.

Chongqing police said the woman had been fined 200 yuan (S$40) for turning on a zebra crossing, and a further 50 yuan – as well as having two points deducted from her driving licence – for wearing a hat and shoes that were deemed to be unsafe to drive in. She and the man reconciled their differences, police said.

The incident attracted plenty of interest online, including 32,000 comments on news portal 163.com. Most people sided with the man while lambasting the woman.

“Judging from her unscrupulous gestures, I think it’s necessary to check her background,” one person wrote. “It’s possible that she has a senior official serving as her protection umbrella.”

“Salute to the man’s punch – it’s just, given the woman’s arrogant and imperious deeds,” another person said.

One user posted: “Porsche drivers can be so arrogant!”
