KUCHING, Sept 23: Police have apprehended 12 suspects in Lundu in connection with an alleged murder case last night.

The Lundu District Police received a call around 2am this morning, informing them that there has been a murder in Kampung Perian there.

Lundu Police Chief Insp Kumbat Tan said according to witness reports, the incident began when a man from Kampung Perian took a woman from Kampung Sebandi nearby back to his village.


His actions apparently irked somebody in Kampung Sebandi, prompting a group of about 10 men from there in three vehicles to travel to Kampung Perian to take the woman back from the Cassanova.

Subsequently, there was a scuffle between the Kampung Sebandi group and another group from Kampung Perian.

Sharp weapons and firearms were believed to have been used during the gangfight, causing one of the men from Kampung Sebandi to sustain wounds to his right hand caused by a sharp weapon, while another one succumbed to his wounds and died on the spot.

“The 12 men aged between 30 and 40-years-old have been apprehended and the case is under investigation,” said Kumbat. — DayakDaily
