MUAR: A 34-year-old man was hacked to death by his father-in-law, who was apparently enraged that his daughter was not being treated properly.
The senior citizen, who is in his 60s, had brought along several of his friends and confronted the man at his daughter’s house in Lorong Eng Peng, Jalan Kim Kee here, at around 1.30am yesterday.
The older man demanded an explanation about their domestic problem.
The argument led to one of the father-in-law’s friends attacking the victim with a sharp weapon believed to be a samurai sword.
This led to a scuffle, which the police believed ended with the father-in-law hacking the man to death.
The father-in-law was also injured in the attack, Muar OCPD Asst
Comm Azman Ayob said.
ACP Azman said police rushed to the scene after receiving a distress call from the public.
“We have arrested a few individuals and recorded their statements to help in our investigations,” he said.
