KUANTAN: Police have arrested three more men over the assault of a student and an ustaz at a tahfiz centre in Lipis.
Lipis district police chief Supt Azli Mohd Noor said two suspects were nabbed in Terengganu - one in Kuala Nerus at 1am Saturday (Aug 13) and another in Kuala Terengganu, one hour later - while the third was picked up at Felda Lepar Utara in Jerantut, Pahang at 8am.
"All three suspects tested positive for heroin, and two of them have criminal records,” he said in a statement.
The other two suspects were arrested in Damak, Jerantut, on Friday (Aug 12).
The ustaz sustained injuries to his right eye and was given four stitches after the assault, which was allegedly due to dissatisfaction over food supply at the centre, on Thursday (Aug 11). - Bernama
