KUALA LUMPUR: The father of murdered college student Kwan Chun Tai, 25 could barely contain his anger and sadness as he said prayers for his son at the Kwong Tong Funeral Parlour.
“This is unacceptable! I cannot take it. Chun Tai never did anything wrong to anyone. Why did he have to kill him?” asked a bloodshot-eyed Kwan Chong Tuck, 59 here Friday.
Describing his son as “childlike”, Kwan said Chun Tai was a caring, sensitive person who never got angry or picked a fight with anyone.
But under the innocent demeanour was a resourceful entrepreneur.
Kwan said Chun Tai, though only 25, managed four clothing retail stores in major shopping malls in the city and was a month away from graduating with his third degree.
“He started working part time in businesses when he was just 14 and made a successful career all by himself. He had so much going for him but that was all cut short by a mad man,” he said.
Chun Tai was stabbed to death by a delivery man who ran amok at the Taman Melati Putra LRT station Thursday.
The man had rammed his van into Chun Tai’s car and stabbed him five times, once in the heart.
The suspect also killed an elderly man and injured two others during his stabbing rampage.
Chun Tai’s cousin, Kwan Wai Yee, 23 said she hoped the man was brought to justice.
“I hope the police investigate this and really punish the man for bringing so much hurt to our family,” she said.
