KOTA KINABALU: Police here have launched a manhunt for a man who allegedly killed his friend over a RM300 loan.

The man had slashed 30-year-old Fazrin Ibrahim and injured his 11-year-old brother-in-law.

It is learnt that he owed Fazrin money.

Lahad Datu police chief ACP Hamza Ahmad said that Fazrin was sending the boy home from school and had stopped to pick up the suspect along the way.

"According to the boy, he was sleeping when he was woken up by sudden aggressive movements.

"Before the boy knew it, he was being attacked and saw that the suspect had slashed his brother-in-law,"  ACP Hamza said when contacted on Tuesday (April 24).

He said Fazrin lost control of his car following the incident and crashed it by the roadside in a housing area at Taman Warisan.

The boy and Fazrin then took the chance to flee. However, the suspect chased after Fazrin.

"The boy did not run far because when he turned, he saw his brother-in-law on the ground," ACP Hamza said, adding that the suspect fled the scene.

The boy went to Fazrin and saw that there was a massive slash wound on his neck, and both were assisted by passers-by, who heard him screaming for help.

They were both taken to the hospital where Fazrin was pronounced dead, and the boy received treatment for injuries to his hands.
