TWO men were found dead in front of Desa Puteri Flats in Sri Petaling early this morning after they were attacked by a group of youths.
S. Chaudry, 32 was found sprawled along the road about 500 metres from the scene of the attack while B. Gunalan, 23 was found dead in a room, which belonged to his relative, at the flats nearby.
Police believe the incident occurred due to a misunderstanding between two groups of youths who were celebrating Deepavali.
The victims and three other friends were having drinks in front of the flats at 1am when the other group arrived on motorcycles.
It is believed the victims and their friends argued with the motorcyclists because of the noise created by their machines.
The motorcyclists left the scene and returned shortly after with two others and started attacking the victims and their friends with parang.
Police believe the victims and their friends had tried to flee the scene to seek help.
However, when police arrived at the scene, they found the body of Chaudry on the road. Blood trails led police to the room where Gunalan’s body was found.
Cheras police chief ACP Ahmad Amir Mohd Hashim said they arrested a 20-year-old, believed to have beeen involved in the incident. The police tracked the suspect from an abandoned motorcycle at the scene of the attack. Both bodies have been sent to Hospital UKM for post-mortems.
