KUALA TERENGGANU: A retired father was seriously injured when his son stabbed him in the back after an argument at Kampung Lembah Harapan Seberang Takir, Saturday night.
State Crime Investigation Department Chief ACP K. Manoharan said the 9.30pm incident occurred when the 55-year-old victim had tried to defuse a quarrel between his son and his fiancee, in front of the house.
He said the 22-year-old son became angry when the father stepped in to offer some advise but the son told him (father) not to interfere in their affair.
"The victim later went down to the house compound to advise his son, but instead a quarrel ensued between the two and ended in a tussle. Unhappy and angry with his father's action, the son allegedly attacked the father and stabbed him in the body with what is believed to be a knife.
"The father was rushed to the hospital by other family members," he told reporters on Sunday.
He said the victim who was an army retiree was injured in the back and the sharp object had pierced his lungs as well as his ribs.
Manoharan said the victim was now being treated at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah (HSNZ) Hospital here and reported to be in stable condition.
He said the suspect who was unemployed was detained at about 1.30am while receiving treatment at the same hospital after he was beaten by his siblings who found out about the incident.
Manoharan said during the incident, the victim's wife and daughter were in the house while his 15-year-old daughter realised the father was stabbed.
The suspect who was tested for drugs tested positive for morphine and was now being remanded for two weeks to facilitate investigations under Section 326 of the Penal Code for causing serious injury.
