Kuala Lumpur: A Muslim man has been fined Rs 7,000 by an Islamic Shariah court in Malaysia for divorcing his wife inside a car, local media reports said on Friday.

The Malay daily Harian Metro said that the man, Hasbullah Hashim, a training manager had lost his temper and proclaimed the divorce three years ago while in a car with his wife.

Hasbullah 53, was charged under the Islamic Family Law Act for divorcing outside the court without permission.
