The police are investigating allegations that YouTube sensation S Pavithra was hit by her husband M Sugu, who has since been detained.

According to sources, the incident took place at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital on Tuesday (July 21).

“Pavithra was visiting a relative who was in labour.

“Her husband, who was said to be drunk, had a dispute with her and hit her,” said the source, adding that the man had also brought a sickle to the hospital.

“The dispute is believed to be because Pavithra didn’t mention his name when receiving an award on Monday (July20),” he also said.

On Monday, Pavithra had received the title of “Ipoh City Icon” from mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin.

The exclusive title is given to Ipoh-born individuals for their success. Among the previous recipients is actress Michelle Yeoh.

When contacted, Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm A Asmadi Abdul Aziz confirmed Sugu’s arrest.

“We are currently investigating the case,” he said.

Meanwhile the Ipoh Magistrate Court has granted a three-day remand order for Sugu to facilitate investigations under Section 6(1) of the Corrosive and Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapon Act 1958.

Clad in purple lock-up attire, the man who was handcuffed arrived at the court compound in a police van at about 10am.

Pavithra and Sugu became YouTube sensations after they uploaded a series of her cooking, under the “Sugu Pavithra” channel during the MCO.

On July 9, the couple met Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who had gifted them a camera tripod, a microwave oven, a rice cooker and cooking utensils.
