1 April 2014
The body of a murdered Burmese man was discovered in a township on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur on Monday night, reports the Malaysian daily The Star. The man, identified as 20-year-old Gin Sian Hku, was found at the back of a restaurant with slash wounds and his throat slit. “He was possibly attacked by one or two of his countrymen following a quarrel,” said Supt Abdul Ghani Mohd Ji, the deputy police chief of Kajang District. A six-inch cleaver was found near the body, but isn’t believed to be the murder weapon, he added. The victim’s hands were covered with fish scales, suggesting that he was working at the time of the attack.
