SINGAPORE - A businesswoman went to visit her husband in hospital after an operation - then got in a scuffle with a woman she believed to be his mistress.

Lee Lian Huay stole eight belongings from employment agency owner Madam Koh Li Ching after the tussle and was fined $5,000 for theft on Tuesday.

A two-day trial had heard how dim sum was spilled when the fracas erupted in a ward at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital on Sept 2 last year. The women ran into each other for the first time while visiting 48-year-old Mr Ong Wee Chuan.

Madam Koh jabbed her finger at Lee, while Mr Ong even threw his drip stand in the direction of his wife - apparently in a bid to separate the women.
