Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Mohd Zani Che Din said the woman’s Malaysian husband had informed the police on the matter when he had his statement recorded a few days ago. “The man claimed that his wife, aged 33, had suffered mental health issues. The woman is now still being treated at the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (PPUM) due to the injuries on her hips. “Checks revealed that the injuries were caused by a fall. Investigation is ongoing and the case may be referred to the deputy public prosecutor soon,” he said in a statement. In the 10.15am incident, the distraught woman, who had bruise marks on her body, suddenly exited a taxi as it stopped at a traffic light and rushed towards a policeman. The woman, who couldn’t speak in any local languages, was then sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital. It was later learned that the woman had a child aged four and was 14-weeks pregnant.
