TEMERLOH: An estate worker was charged at a magistrate’s court here with killing his colleague over a tasteless and unhygienic food preparation.
A calm Mohamad Rosli Naqur Gani, 35, said he understood the charge read to him in Bahasa Malaysia before magistrate Najwa Hashim yesterday.
He is charged with killing R. Devadas, 60, at a house in Bellenggu Halt, Mentakab near here, on April 17.
Mohamad Rosli apparently quarrelled with Devadas because the meal the latter cooked was not tasty and also not prepared hygienically.
He was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder. If convicted, Mohamad Rosli faces the death penalty.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Nik Rabiatul Adawiyah Nik Soupy did not offer bail. Mohamad Rosli was unrepresented.
Najwa set June 1 for mention as the prosecution has to wait for the report from the chemist.
