Karaoke owner: Maid killed my dog
By YUEN MEIKENG
PETALING JAYA: A karaoke owner has alleged that her maid killed her dog after getting angry when it urinated inside the house.
Khor Chung, 54, claimed that her foreign maid was seen beating the five-year-old female dog called Money in a CCTV recording on Thursday.
“When I left my house at 1pm, my dog was still active. Two hours later, I received a call from my maid and she was crying. She said my dog had died,” she said.
Khor said she returned to her house in Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur, to find Money, a Yorkshire Terrier, lying lifeless under her bed.
“When I checked the CCTV recording in my house, my maid was seen beating the dog with her bare hands. After that, she carried the dog into the toilet. The camera does not capture what happens inside so I don't know what she did. But she came out of the toilet without Money,” said Khor.
She further alleged that the maid did not bother to check on the dog in the toilet but went on to shower and eat.
After watching the video, Khor confronted the 22-year-old maid and asked: “Why did you beat my dog?”
The maid allegedly knelt down while crying and said: “I'm sorry. I didn't mean for it to happen.”
Khor said a friend helped her to lodge a police report at the Jalan Travers police station.
Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Muhammad Azlee Abdullah confirmed receiving a police report on the matter. He said the maid was being remanded to assist in investigations.
