IN what was described as a gruesome act, a man tried to burn his wife alive in the bathroom of their home in Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur.
Just before his wife, a nurse, came back from work, the 28-year-old husband had poured petrol on the bathroom floor and discreetly placed a home-made bomb there.
As his wife went in to take a bath, he flicked a lighted cigarette, causing a big explosion and engulfing the bathroom in flames, Harian Metroreported.
The man allegedly left his wife burning and screaming in pain for about 10 minutes before he dragged her out of the bathroom to rush her to Kuala Lumpur Hospital and lodge a report at the Dang Wangi police station.
After questioning the man and inspecting the scene, the police found discrepancies in his statement and arrested him for arson and attempting to kill his wife.
The victim is reportedly in a critical condition, with almost 80% burns on her body.
City deputy CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Arasa said the motive could be jealousy.
He said the suspect had been remanded for further investigations.
