A scuffle turned bloody after a part-time KTV hostess was kicked in her face repeatedly by a colleague, causing her left eyeball to pop out.
The incident happened on Oct 8, 2015, in Club One KTV Boutique at Jalan Sultan, reports The Straits Times.
The court heard that the victim Ms Nur Lena, 30, and her assailant, Siti Zahara Afifi Abdul Karim, 28, had been arguing at 3.20am on the day of the incident.
The argument led to a scuffle, and both fell on the floor.
Siti Zahara who was wearing a pair of stiletto heels measuring about 14.5cm, continually kicked Ms Nur Lena’s face, despite intervention from a witness.
Ms Nur Lena felt the heel hit her eyelid twice before it jabbed her eye, dislodging her eyeball.
She was conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital for treatment, where it was discovered that she had suffered left-eye permanent blindness and right-eye temporal hemianopia, a condition in which patients can only see the nasal part of their visual field.
Her left eye was removed and an orbital implant was done.
Yesterday (Oct 3), Siti Zahara was convicted of causing grievous hurt to Ms Nur Lena by carrying out a rash act to endanger the personal safety of others.
Court documents revealed that the two had a turbulent relationship before the incident.
Siti Zahara’s sister was the ex-girlfriend of Ms Nur Lena’s friend.
During that time, Siti Zahara’s sister had gotten a set of braces, which Ms Nur Lena’s friend had been paying for.
After the relationship ended, the friend wanted to continue paying for the braces despite Ms Nur Lena urging him not to.
It was this incident that sparked the argument on Oct 8.
District Judge Mathew Joseph will hear a plea by Siti Zahara's lawyer and the prosecution's submissions on the sentence on Oct 31.
For causing grievous hurt, Siti Sahara faces a maximum penalty of four years’ imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.
