Accused of having an affair with a married woman, a man was beaten to death by a group in Batu Pahat recently.

The victim, 26, was rushed to hospital in an unconscious state about 10pm on Tuesday, but died at 5.15am the next day.

Police said initial investigations revealed the man was taken to an isolated location in Senggarang where he was beaten up by the group.

 Among members of the group, said Azhan, included the husband of the woman, who was accused of having extramarital affair with the victim.

Acting on preliminary investigation, police picked up 10 people including three women from several locations here and Tangkak in connection with the murder.

“The first arrest involved two women including the 38-year-old woman, who was accused of having an affair with the victim.

“She and her friend, 36, were arrested on Thursday and were subsequently remanded until Wednesday to facilitate police investigation into the case,” said police.

According to The New Striats Times, police interrogation on the duo led to the arrest of the remaining eight suspects aged between 24 and 38 including the husband of the married woman on Friday.

“They have been remanded for a week to assist police investigation into the murder,” said police, adding that case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
