Jobless man stabs father to death over phone use

JELEBU: A 35-year-old jobless man allegedly stabbed his 59-year-old father to death at their home in Simpang Pertang here after being chided for spending too much time on his mobile phone.

An argument then ensued and the father hit him with a plastic chair, said Jelebu OCPD DSP Maslan Udin.

“The son allegedly retaliated by stabbing his father, ” he said.

The victim died at the entrance of their home in a low-cost housing scheme here.

The victim’s 85-year-old mother lived in the same house but was out when the incident happened, he said.

A preliminary probe found that the victim was stabbed more than once.

The suspect was caught in town a short while later. He had moved into the house in March and often got into arguments with his father.

Police are probing the case under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
