NIBONG TEBAL: A 37-year-old factory worker, who was injured in the face and body in a work-related accident a week ago, was found hanged at his home in Taman Merak.
N. Kumaresan (pic), a father of two, was found by his father Nadarajan at 7.30am yesterday.
South Seberang Prai OCPD Supt Shafien Mamat said the 65-year-old broke open the front lock and entered his son’s house after his phone calls to Kumaresan went unanswered.
Supt Shafien said Nadarajan had taken his son to his house in Taman Seri Emas in Nibong Tebal at 5.30pm on Wednesday.
“The father told police that his son was worried and kept enquiring about the wounds on his face and body. He asked if he would be scarred for life.”
“At about 1am on Thursday (yesterday), the deceased asked his father to send him back to his home in Taman Merak,” Supt Shafien said.
“The father had tried to call his son since 6.30am yesterday and when the calls went unanswered, he rushed over to Kumaresan’s house,” he said.
After forcing his way in, he found Kumaresan’s body hanged with a nylon rope in one of the rooms.
Supt Shafien said the case had been classified as sudden death.
Kumaresan’s wife was at work when the incident happened. “Their children lived with their uncle,” he added.
The body has been sent to the Seberang Jaya Hospital for a post-mortem.
