A WOMAN allegedly tried to sell her three young children after her married boyfriend refused to help her financially, China Press reported.
In a Facebook posting, the woman said she was forced to ask him for help because she was in financial difficulty.
It was learnt that the woman and her boyfriend had an argument after she pressed him to divorce his wife and marry her, which he refused to.
The woman then did not want to have sex with him, which made him stop giving her money.
In her posting, the woman said she was an orphan and nobody helped her.
The post was deleted after it went viral, with some netizens criticising her for making the matter public.
Bukit Aman Sexual, Women and Child Investigation Division assistant principal director Asst Comm Ong Chin Lan said police could act against the woman, but said no report had been lodged so far.
