He was having a drink with a friend in a restaurant when they were set upon.
The 35-year-old, known as “Asli Guna”, was having a drink with a Sri Lankan friend at a restaurant in Jalan Pandan 2 when the three parang-wielding men drove up at about 3am on Wednesday.
There was an argument in the middle of the road and Asli Guna and his friend were attacked by the armed men, the Star online reported.
Kuala Langat OCPD Supt Azman Abdul Razak said the men allegedly stabbed Asli Guna and the foreigner before speeding away in a black Proton Iswara.
“We received a distress call from the restaurant owner. When our officers arrived, we found the Sri Lankan man injured.
“Asli Guna, however, was rushed by his friends to the Sentosa Medical Centre before he was pronounced dead at about 5am,” he said.
A police source said Asli Guna was a notorious gang leader and that his killing occurred due to a drug dispute with the three suspects.
“We have recorded a statement from the Sri Lankan victim, who is recovering at the Banting Hospital. We have identified the suspects and are tracking them down,” Supt Azman said.
