IPOH: A Form Three boy killed his 19-year-old brother after he scolded the boy for smoking. 

The brother was a factory worker in Jalan Lahat here.  

The Form Three boy stabbed his elder brother in the neck outside their home in Taman Mas, Chemor, at 10.30pm on Wednesday. 

State deputy CID chief Supt Abdul Rahman Hashim said the factory worker had earlier caught his brother smoking near their home and scolded him. 

He said this angered the younger brother and sparked off a quarrel which ended with the elder brother being stabbed with a sharp weapon. 

Supt Abdul Rahman said their mother and other siblings were inside the house at the time of the incident while their father, a General Operations Force personnel, was on duty at the North Brigade in Ulu Kinta.  

“The family only realised what had happened when they heard the elder brother scream. They rushed him to the Ipoh Hospital. 

“He died at 11.30pm shortly after he was sent there,” he said. 

Supt Abdul Rahman said police found a bloodstained knife at the family's home. 

“A student has been remanded for 12 days until Sept 6 for investigations,” he added.
