SEREMBAN: A New Year dinner with friends turned out to be a bloody outing for a 28-year-old foreman from Taman Permai here after he was attacked by a group of parang-wielding men purportedly engaged by a loan shark. 

The victim, B. Ganapathy, sustained head and body injuries when he was slashed by the group of three men outside a restaurant in Kemayan Square at 12.30am yesterday. 

He had supposedly stood guarantor for a loan which his elder brother had secured from a loan shark here, a few years ago.  

It is learnt that Ganapathy was having meal with his two friends at the restaurant when the group confronted him demanding monthly interest payments. 

A fiery argument broke out between the victim and the group when the former insisted that all payments had been settled. The perpetrators then threatened to harm the victim if he failed to pay.  

Ganapathy was adamant and the trio slashed him.  

He is being warded for multiple slash wounds at Seremban Hospital. 

OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Khalid Abu Hassan said a suspect had been detained to help investigation under Sect 324 of the Penal Code.
