Northeast district police chief ACP Anuar Omar said police were notified by the hospital that T Nhaveen had died at 6pm.

Anuar did not respond to queries on whether the case will now be classified as murder but told the press that more information will be provided later. According to one of Nhaveen’s relatives who did not want to be named, Nhaveen had died of heart failure.

Nhaveen, from Taman Tun Sardon, Bukit Gelugor, was allegedly attacked when he and his friend T. Previin, 19. They were eventually cornered by a group of six, who attacked them with crash helmets, sticks and shoes. Nhaveen’s friend, T. Previin, 19, managed to escape and inform Nhaveen’s family members.

Nhaveen, who was also sodomised and burnt on his back, suffered internal bleeding in his head and abdomen. On Tuesday, the remand of five teenagers was extended in connection with the case. — PN
