KL cops hunting five who allegedly beat man to death

KUALA LUMPUR: Police are hunting for five individuals suspected of beating a man to death in a condominium at the Bukit Serdang Industrial Park here.

Serdang District Police chief ACP AA Anbalagan said the victim's younger sister lodged a police report regarding the incident at 5.29pm on Tuesday (Feb 28).

He said the complainant found out about the incident through a phone call from her brother's girlfriend, who told her that he had been assaulted by five individuals inside the rented condominium unit before being taken to another location.

"She received the phone call at 7.15am and at 11.30am, the main suspect contacted her to inform her that her brother had been admitted to the Cyberjaya Hospital emergency department.

"The complainant then went to the hospital and was told that her brother had died due to severe injuries," he said in a statement on Tuesday.

Anbalagan said the victim, 31, suffered injuries to the eyes and nose as well as bleeding on both ears, with the cause of death being a blow from a blunt object.

"Based on preliminary investigations, the motive for the murder is believed to be revenge and jealousy by one of the suspects. Police are tracking down all the suspects and the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder," he said. – Bernama
