KULAI: Some 13 men have been arrested by the police here for allegedly being involved in the death of a foreigner whose body was found with stab wounds here.

Kulai OCPD Supt Tok Beng Yeow said the suspects, who include 10 Indian nationals and three Myanmar nationals, were arrested at about 8.10am on Saturday (May 8), three hours after the discovery of the victim’s body, who is believed to be a Myanmar man in his 30s.

“The police received a phone call from a Nepalese man at about 5.40am on Saturday (May 8) informing them that a Myanmar man in his 30s had been found unconscious with blood oozing out of him at Taman Senai Jaya 2.

“Acting on the information, police were deployed to the scene where they found the victim lying on the ground with blood all over him and several wounds.

"A knife was also found near the body. However, no identification documents were found on the body,” he said in a statement Sunday (May 9).

“Following investigations, police have arrested 13 suspects, who are between the ages of 22 and 50 years old, believed to be involved in the incident.

“The incident is believed to have happened when the suspects and the victim got into a brawl after getting drunk,” he added.

He said the suspects would be remanded for six days starting Sunday (May 9) and that the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
