GEORGE TOWN: In a week’s time, he would have enrolled in a private college to pursue his dream of becoming a music composer. But now, 18-year-old student T. Nhaveen is on life support because he has been declared brain dead.

The boy, described as a kind, soft-spoken and gentle type who never went looking for trouble, was allegedly assaulted by a group of teenagers at around midnight on Saturday at a field in Jalan Kaki Bukit in Bukit Gelugor, and was sent to Penang Hospital in an unconscious state.
