Man beaten to death in George Town casket shop


GEORGE TOWN --- A 60-year-old vagrant was beaten to death early today in a casket shop after a heated argument turned violent.

It was learnt that the victim, known only as Maniam, was with a friend at the outlet at 4am. A war of words then broke out between Maniam and several others.

Northeast district police chief Assistant Commissioner Mior Farid Alatrash Wahid said police were alerted to the commotion and deployed its men to the scene.

"The man was found slumped on a chair with severe head and bodily injuries. He was pronounced dead by paramedics who later arrived at the scene.

"The victim's 41-year-old friend who was with him witnessed the attack and lodged a police report," Mior said.

Mior said the investigating team found another man loitering at the rear of the outlet and detained him for questioning.

The suspect has been remanded until next Thursday to assist in investigations.

He said initial checks showed that the victim was assaulted with an iron rod, which police later seized from the crime scene.

The case has been classified as murder.
