IPOH: A man, said to be homeless, was found dead with cuts on his neck and engine oil splattered on his face at a bus station in Tapah, about 56km from here.
A passerby saw the man, identified as K. Singaram Chetiar, unconscious and covered in blood at the bus station in Jalan Raja at around 12.50am yesterday.
After being tipped off, the police rushed to the bus stop but by the time they arrived, the man had died.
“Our men found the body there but did not find any signs of struggle at the scene,” said Tapah OCPD Supt Somsak Din Keliau.
He added that a post-mortem showed the 37-year-old suspected murder victim, who lived on the streets, died of multiple wounds to the neck.
“He was attacked with a sharp object believed to be a knife,” said Supt Somsak.
He said the police had picked up three people, aged 36 to 42, for questioning over the incident.
Two of the arrested men are said to be homeless as well, while the third person is a security guard at the bus station.
