BALING: Four men were charged in the Magistrate’s Court here on Tuesday (Oct 10) with the murder of an elderly man who was found strangled with his hands and legs bound at his home in Kuala Ketil near here on Oct 1.

K. Tamilselvam, 25; C. Vickarran, 33; Sarim Omar, also 33; and S. Sureshkumar, 21; are accused of having murdered S. Kanan, 71, at his house in Lorong Bidara 4, Taman Desa Bidara, at about 3pm on that day.

All of them nodded after the charge, under Section 302 of the Penal Code, was read out to them before Sessions Court Judge Najwa Che Mat, who sat as the magistrate, but no plea was recorded as murder cases come under the jurisdiction of the High Court.

The court set Dec 14 for mention of the case pending receipt of the forensic and chemistry lab reports.
