Singapore, Sept 9: An Indian-origin man in Singapore has been jailed for eight months for physically assaulting his girlfriend and abusing a police officer, media said today.

A court sentenced him to eight months in prison and fined 4,000 Singapore dollars (USD 2,829) yesterday. On March 15, Murugan, claiming Radika had embarrassed him at the dinner in front of his friends, punched her in the face.

When Radika locked her apartment from inside, he threatened her and smashed seven flower pots. After police came, Murugan was found sleeping on a floor below. He denied smashing the flower pots and hurled abuses at a senior police officer who had handcuffed him.

The cop warned him to stop but he continued to hurl abuses. On February 21, Murugan threatened his god sister Madam Milah with a chopper, alleging that she had badmouthed him in front of his girlfriend, leading to his relationship break up.
