Crime scene: A relative speaking to the suspect (in yellow t-shirt) outside the latter’s rented house in Kampung Langgar, Alor Setar, after the incident.
ALOR SETAR: A 28-year-old char koay teow seller who went berserk when he found his wife and her lover naked in a room slashed both of them with a parang.
The 32-year-old woman and the 19-year-old youth, who was the char koay teow seller’s helper, were rushed to Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital with serious injuries.
The teenager, whose left hand was almost severed, underwent immediate surgery. He also suffered a broken leg.
The suspect turned himself in at the police station.
It is believed that he chanced upon the couple in the room of his rented house in Kampung Langgar when he returned home at 2am yesterday.
Apparently, the noodle seller had extended the operating hours of his stall in Pekan Langgar because of the World Cup matches.
However, he went home early to watch the match between Brazil and Mexico scheduled to start at 3am.
State police CID chief ACP Mohd Nashir Ya said the suspect had been remanded, adding that both victims were warded at Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital.
