AN ustaz and three wardens were remanded for a week in connection with the death of an inmate at a drug rehabilitation centre in Padang Rengas, Kuala Kangsar, due to severe injuries sustained during an amok incident on Wednesday.

“They were remanded for seven days, starting today until next Friday,” he said.
Yesterday, police arrested the four men to help in the investigation under section 302 of the penal code for murder.

The patient, who was brought by an ustaz and three wardens from the rehabilitation centre, was then taken to the emergency ward for a Covid-19 test and X-ray of the victim’s body because there were wounds on the forehead and bruises on the face, left eye, chest, both legs and hands.
Prior to that, the victim was reported to be talking to himself in the afternoon and tried to escape, but was held before he tried to injure one of the wardens by using a knife and later ran amok.
The victim was successfully calmed down after a scuffle with the warden, who punched the victim’s body several times.
However, at 4.45pm, the victim tried to escape again and jumped from the stairs of the first floor of the building, which is about eight metres high.
After being successfully recaptured, the victim’s legs and hands were tied and he was brought to the guest room, but the victim hit his head on the floor and wall several times until he bled. The warden found the victim unconscious at 7.45pm and took him to the hospital.
However, the post-mortem conducted at Kuala Kangsar Hospital’s forensic unit found that the cause of death was due to chest and musculoskeletal injuries due to blunt trauma. – Bernama, August 20, 2022.
