MIRI: A university student was found brutally beaten to death Saturday in a rented house in Kuala Baram district not far from the Curtin University of Technology Sarawak campus where he was studying.
The body of the youth, believed to be in his late teens, was found sprawled in a pool of blood inside the double-storey house in Desa Senadin, a housing estate located not far from the university campus.
Miri Police Chief Asst Comm Mun Kock Keong said the police are investigating the case as a possible murder.
"We are interviewing those staying inside the house (there are several other students renting the house and the victim is one of them) to find out what had actually happened.
"The victim is a university student," he said.
State Assemblyman for Senadin, Datuk Lee Kim Shin, who is also the chairman of the Curtin Sarawak board of management, called on the police to get to the bottom of this case.
"We view this very seriously. It involves a young person who is also a student.
“The police are investigating if the murder was caused by a break-in or robbery or internal problems inside the house.
"I have also called on the student council in the university to find out more details about the case," he said.
Lee, who is SUPP Senadin branch chairman, said it was good to note that the Miri police had gone to the scene very fast.
He said the victim was from another state.
