Guard dies from injuries after week-long coma

KUALA LUMPUR: A security guard, beaten by two Myanmar nationals who had picked mangoes from a tree outside his workplace in Hulu Klang, died after a week-long coma.

Mohd Raini Mohamed Junus, 52, was warde­d at Universiti Malaya Medical Centre after he was knocked unconscious in Jalan Sepadu at about 4.45pm on Dec 5.

He was said to have tried to stop the two foreigners from plucking the fruits from the tree, about 10m from where he worked.

Mohd Raini was unhappy with the two, who would pluck the mangoes in large quantities to sell them.

Accompanied by his nephew Mohd Khasrol Hasnan, 27, he told the duo off. However, the men started beating Mohd Raini and his nephe­w with sticks. Mohd Khasrol suffered a broken left arm but his uncle blacked out.

Mohd Raini died on Tuesday evening.

Brickfields OCPD Deputy Supt Aida Abdul Hamid said: “We have arrested a suspect.”
