A 31-year-old woman was beaten up by her husband when she confronted him by bringing the second wife "for a talk", reported Harian Metro.
The first wife brought the second wife, in her 20s, to meet with their husband at her house in Sungai Petani last Friday as he had denied marrying again.
The man became enraged and started scolding her.
A source told the tabloid that the husband, in his 30s, asked the first wife for the keys to his motorcycle as he wanted to leave the house.
"She refused and asked him to solve their problem first."
The husband reportedly became angry and started punching, kicking and slapping the first wife.
He also took a piece of paper and lit it before tossing it into the house to intimidate the wife.
"She was scared and gave him the motorcycle keys," said the source.
The man left, leaving behind both wives. The victim, who suffered bruises all over the body, lodged a report at Sungai Petani police station.
