BANGSAR - A father forced his 20-year-old daughter to drink a mixture of painkillers and soda in an attempt to induce miscarriage after learning she was pregnant, reported Harian Metro.
The father even attacked her and her husband in the incident that took place at their home in Pantai Dalam, Bangsar, at 12.30am on Thursday.
Police sources said that before the incident, the man, in his 50s, came home angry and assaulted his daughter and son-in-law who had only been married for a few months. He apparently disliked them.
"The suspect told his daughter to end her marriage. When the 20-year-old told him that she was pregnant, the suspect lost his temper," said the source.
He then went on to make the deadly cocktail and forced her to drink it. However, the couple managed to push him away before a scuffle broke out between them.
During the fight, the father pushed her and she fell down.
She sought treatment at a clinic later and she and her baby were reported to be in stable condition.
The couple lodged a police report after that.
