Two friends charged with murder of mechanic

Last Update: 04/11/2019

KUANTAN, Nov 4  -- Two friends were charged in the Magistrates' Court here today with the murder of a mechanic whose body was found floating in Tasik Paya Bungor, Gambang, last month.

The accused, D. Puhaleandran, 20, and N. Sathis Kumar, 27, both nodded to indicate that they understood when the charge was read out before Magistrate Nurunaim Abdullah.

However, no plea was recorded from both accused who were unemployed as the murder cases fall under the purview of the High Court.

Puhaleandran, from Banting, Selangor, and Sathis Kumar of Maran near here, were charged with murdering A. Raju, 39, between 3 am and 5 am on Oct 18 in a Proton Wira car at Felda Lepar Hilir 3, Gambang here.

Deputy public prosecutor Muhammad Muhairi Mohamed Noh prosecuted under Section 302 of the Penal Code which provides for mandatory death sentence, upon conviction.

In the proceeding, the two accused were not represented and Nurunaim set Jan 17 for remention.

On Oct 20, Kuantan district police chief ACP Mohamad Noor Yusof Ali confirmed the discovery of Raju’s body found floating with both his hands and legs bound, by water pump maintenance workers at the lake.

The victim was found wearing a red shirt and black jeans and his body was identified by his stepbrother, who said that Raju often commuted from his home in Kampung Sri Jaya, Maran, to Gambang for work.
