Lottery winner jailed for punching wife and slapping five-year-old child
District Judge Debbie Wright commented on photos of Ms Kaur after the attack and said she had suffered “serious injuries, adding: “This cross the custody threshold by a mile.”
She said: “You’ve clearly got the means to pay. He had a lottery win.”
Malhotra now lives with his parents and does not see Ms Kaur.
The attack comes after EuroMillions winner John Gallagher, who scooped a £1.2million win in 2013, was jailed for five years during the summer for assaulting two men with a hammer and a dog chain at his local pub.
The drifting labourer, who also had alcohol problems, described his lottery win as sparking “two years of hell”.
