PETALING JAYA: A middleman for foreign workers was found dead with stab wounds all over his body at the Maju Jaya Industrial Park in Bukit Puchong.
Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli said the 40-year-old man, believed to be a Myanmar identified as Phay Hein, was lying in a pool of blood in front of a shophouse at around 9.30pm Wednesday.
“He had stab wounds on his right rib and left side of his neck and head,” he said. The body was found without any identification papers.
“We believe he was assaulted by several people,” ACP Yahaya added.
The case has been classified as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
A grocery shop owner at the industrial park said he noticed a crowd gathering outside his shop which was about to close for business at about 9.30pm.
“I only saw the lower portion of his body and was shocked to hear what had happened.
“I don’t know the victim personally but there are many foreigners living in the area.
“They come to my store after work to do some shopping,” said the man who did not want to be named.
He said it was strange that he did not hear any commotion outside the store around the time the body was discovered by a passer-by.
“I would’ve gone out if I heard a fight going on. But there was no sound of people arguing, or anyone getting beaten up,” he added.
