Three African friends’ night out in Kuala Lumpur was tragically cut short on Monday night (October 3) when one of them was slain in an alleged fight that took place at the parking lot of a nightclub located at Jalan Tun Razak.
It was reported that eight suspects of African descent were subsequently detained to help with the investigations.
The Wangsa Maju control centre was tipped off by police officers at the Pudu police station at 5.35 a.m., as per Supt. Ashari Abu Samah, the district police chief for Wangsa Maju, after three African citizens were found injured and taken to a hospital following the suspected brawl.
Investigations also found that the victims had been grappling with a group of Africans.
“A 32-year-old male, who was one of the victims, passed away from severe injuries while obtaining medical attention at the hospital,” Ashari stated, adding that the deceased was likely slashed or stabbed at the back of his neck.
Additionally, as per Wau Post, footage captured at the fight’s scene depicts the gory affair; namely a man face-down on a car park complex’s exit ramp, laying atop a puddle of blood with splodges of red visible all around his torso.
A man is seen standing over him, clad in a bloodstained shirt.
Investigations at the incident led local authorities to the eight foreign nationals, who ranged in age from 26 to 40. They were promptly apprehended and transferred to the Wangsa Maju District police headquarters for further action.
The case will be probed for murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
