3 detained after body found in security guards’ toilet

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have detained two Nepalese nationals and a local after the discovery of a body in the toilet of a security guardhouse at a condominium building in Petaling Jaya, near here.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Mohd Zani Che Din said the victim, Lee Poh Meng, 54, was found by members of the public in a pool of blood at about 3pm yesterday.

“The victim was found in the toilet for the security guards which was locked, and the hospital confirmed that the victim had died at the location of the incident,” he said in a statement.

He said the three men were arrested at the condominium at about 6pm. The two foreign nationals worked as security guards while the local suspect was a security guard manager.

“After checking the footage of the CCTV camera, it was found that the victim had been repeatedly assaulted with a safety helmet by one of the suspects in the control room of the security guards on Sunday (Sept 1).

“It is believed the assault was due to the victim not paying the salaries of the security guards,” Zain said.
