SIBU: A man claimed yesterday that his wife and their 11-month-old son had been taken to Kuching by her WeChat friend.

He said his wife and son were taken to Kuching on Nov 27 while two other children were left at home.

According to the husband, his wife told him that she had been beaten by the man in a hotel while in Kuching.

He said his wife had escaped from the hotel and would meet him in Sibu.

The husband, who works in Miri, arrived in Sibu at 4am yesterday to meet his wife but she never showed up.
