KLANG: A prominent contractor was slashed to death in his bedroom at
Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2 here yesterday morning while his wife and
daughter were locked up in another room.
The victim, S. Sivananthan, 31, was sleeping
when three men walked into his house and slashed him on the neck, legs
and hands at 9.15am.
The attack was so vicious the knee caps and bones in his hands were exposed.
His wife, R. Kavita, 31, had opened the front gate to drive to the
market when her 3-year-old daughter started crying and insisted on
Kavita alighted from the car and went into the
house to take her daughter when three men brandishing parang walked
into the house.
"They put a parang to my neck and ordered me to keep quiet. I told them to take anything they wanted and not to harm us.
"One of them said that they will do what they came to do," Kavita said.
The men then herded Kavita and her daughter into one of the rooms downstairs and told them to be silent.
"Moments later, I heard my husband screaming. Everything went quiet after that."
She said she waited for several minutes and realising that there were
no more movements, she opened the room door and dashed out of the house
and screamed for help.
Neighbours rushed to her aid and alerted the police.
While waiting for the police, nobody dared to enter the house, fearing the men might still be inside.
Several neighbours climbed on the roof of the porch and broke one of the windows of the master bedroom.
Sivanathan was found in a pool of blood on the bed, barely moving.
Police and an ambulance arrived shortly and he was rushed to Tengku
Ampuan Rahimah Hospital. He died about 11am in the intensive care unit
due to blood loss.
Police learned that the assailants had fled in Kavita's Perodua Kembara, bearing registration number BFU 162.
Neighbours told police they saw three men standing beside a motorcycle at a junction just before the incident.
The motorcycle was found at the same spot. Checks revealed that it was reported stolen in Segambut recently.
Sivananthan, originally from Sungai Petani, had settled in Klang. He
was involved in the construction business and was even featured in one
of the Tamil dailies last week.
"My husband's screams will
haunt me for the rest of my life. I don't know why anyone would want to
do this to us," said a grief-stricken Kavita.
Police are looking at business rivalry as one of the possible motives as nothing was taken from the house.
Those with information on the case can contact the district police headquarters at 03-33712222 or the nearest police station.
