A 46-year-old single mother from Taiping was handcuffed, taken to the police station and forced to spend the night in lock-up despite settling her RM500 bail on time.

The reason for her arrest is because her dog attacked and injured a neighbour in July.

For further context, on July 10, Soraja Devi pleaded guilty to negligence in guarding her pet dog, resulting in the injury of a 12-year-old girl.

Nurilmi Natrah Mohd Muzri, the victim, was attacked in-front of a house in Kampung Larut Tin Sambungan.

Bernama reported that Soraja was then charged under Section 289 of the Penal Code on September 10, which can result in imprisonment for up to six months and a maximum fine of RM2,000 upon conviction.

On Monday, Soraja spent the night in lock-up dressed in purple attire as police officers failed to verify her claim that she had made the bail payment, despite the fact that she had the receipt.
