Teenage security guard hacked to death in revenge killing
ALOR GAJAH: In what appeared to be revenge attack, a teenage security guard was hacked to death by four men armed with machetes at the Klemak industry area here.
M. Kuganthiran, 19, who sustained wounds on the neck, left hand and abdomen in the 6.50am incident Saturday, collapsed from his motorcycle, enroute to his workplace at a factory.
He died at 9.20am, while undergoing surgery at the Alor Gajah Hospital.
Alor Gajah police chief Supt Umar Ali Saifuddin Shaharudin said initial investigations revealed the killing could be linked to a fight in Tampin last Wednesday.
In that incident, a man was killed and three others injured.
Prior to the attack on Kuganthiran, the victim was riding a motorcycle when a car grazed the machine, causing the victim to fall.
"Upon seeing four men armed with machetes rushing out of the vehicle, the victim ran for about 100 metres before the men caught up with him. They then attacked the security guard," he said. - Bernama
