SHAH ALAM: A Bangladeshi man was stabbed to death by his colleague at a factory workers’ hostel in Section 36 here yesterday.

Shah Alam district police chief ACP Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim said the incident was believed to have occurred when the suspect, a Pakistani national, became enraged as the 49-year-old victim drank his orange juice while breaking fast.

“The 51-year-old suspect resorted to stabbing the victim, who was a general labourer, numerous times using a kitchen knife,” he said in a statement today.

Mohd Iqbal said the police were alerted to the incident around 7.20 pm and arrested the suspect about 10 minutes later at the scene.

“The police also seized a knife believed to have been used by the suspect in the incident,” he said.
