SHAH ALAM: A college student alleged with stabbing a youth in the neck during a fight at an entertainment outlet last week was charged at the magistrate’s court here today.
K. Punitan, 19, nodded his head as a sign he understood the charge that was read to him before magistrate Norshakinah Ahmad Kamarudin.
However, no plea was recorded.
Punitan was alleged to have murdered Mohd Sharul Ali, 22, at E-Zone entertainment outlet in Lot 873-A Jalan Kampung, Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh at about 2.20am on Sept 21.
Norshakinah fixed Oct 28 for mention.
The accused was unrepresented.
It was earlier reported that a youth died after he was stabbed in the neck during a fight at an entertainment outlet in Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh last week.
In the 2am incident, the victim from Paya Jaras was rushed to the Sungai Buloh Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Initial investigations found that the fight started inside one of the karaoke rooms at the two-storey outlet, which also provides snooker facilities.-NST
