Couple who allegedly beat son to death remanded


Under arrest: Canadian police have arrested two men and are seeking two others for exporting controlled goods and technologies intended for space satellite use to China in violation of export and defense laws.

PETALING JAYA: A couple who are suspected of having beaten their nine-year-old son to death have been remanded to allow for investigations into the case.

The boy's parents are reported to have sent him to a clinic in Subang Jaya on Friday afternoon, where it was discovered that the boy had passed away.

Upon realising that the boy's body bore various marks of abuse, the doctor contacted the police.

Subang OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Azlin Sadari said the bruises were found on the boy's face, both hands and legs, and buttocks.

"The body was sent to Hospital Serdang for a post-mortem and both parents were detained. The injuries are believed to have been due to the victim being punched and beaten with a cane," he said when contacted on Sunday.

The cause of death has been confirmed as being due to blunt force trauma.

ACP Mohammad Azlin added that both parents had prior criminal records.

"The father, 33, has one drug related record while the mother, 36, has records for cheating and house break-ins. She is also wanted for a theft case in Kuantan," he said.

They have been remanded until June 2.
