A safety coordinator who hit his wife with a motorcycle exhaust pipe and broke her collarbone and left finger was jailed for 12 weeks on Thursday.

Inderjit Singh Bhagh Singh, 36, admitted to hitting Ms Amrita Dubey Hridai Narain Dubey, 26, with a 50cm-long pipe twice at his home in Woodlands on July 27, 2012.

He was fined $2,000 after admitting to using abusive words on a police sergeant along the corridor of Block 576 Woodlands Drive 16 on Jan 2 this year.

A district court heard that Inderjit returned home drunk at about 1 am on July 27, 2012 and woke his wife up. He asked for her mobile phone, but Ms Amrita refused to give it to him. He scolded her and kept asking her who she was having an affair with, but she persistently denied having an affair.
