IPOH – A man was killed while his friend was seriously injured after being slashed in a fracas in Jalan Kanthan, Buntong, here, last night.

Ipoh deputy police chief Supt Mohd Nor Rasid said police received information on the feud at about 11.20pm when police from the Buntong station were patrolling the area.

“Upon arriving at the location, police found two victims, both aged 26, severely wounded in an attack by six men and were brought to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital for treatment,” he said in a statement here today.

He said, however, one of the victims was pronounced dead due to bleeding from slash wounds.

Mohd Nor said the motive of the incident has yet to be identified and police were hot on the trail of the six men involved in the quarrel.

The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder and the identity of the two victims have been held back.
