Pelatih PKLN Muadzam Shah mati dibunuh...
Seorang pelatih berumur 18 tahun dipercayai dibunuh di kem Program Latihan Khidmat Negara (PLKN) di Muadzam Shah, Pahang kerana dikatakan memotong barisan semasa sarapan pagi pada Ahad lalu.
Sehubungan itu, tiga pelatih berumur 17, 18 dan 21 ditahan polis bagi membantu penyiasatan kes bunuh berkenaan.
Mangsa, Muhammad Suhaimi Norhamidi ditemui tidak sedarkan diri di bilik mandi kem itu pada 12.04 pagi dan disahkan meninggal dunia ketika tiba di Hospital Muadzam Shah.
Terdapat tanda kecederaan di belakang telinganya, dipercayai disebabkan oleh objek keras.
Bedah siasat awal mendapati Suhaimi mati kerana kecederaan di bahagian otak.
Timbalan Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Pahang Mohd Haris Dau mengatakan tiga yang ditahan berasal dari Johor dan Pahang.
Katanya siasatan awal mendapati mangsa menyebabkan kemarahan beberapa pelatih PLKN lain apabila memotong barisan pada Ahad.
Ini menyebabkan pergaduhan pertama antara mangsa dan tiga yang lain beberapa jam kemudian.
Mohd Haris berkata, pergaduhan kedua berlaku pada 11.30 malam dan 30 minit selepas itu, mangsa ditemui tidak sedarkan diri di lantai bilik mandi.
Terdapat 22 kematian semenjak PLKN diperkenalkan pada Disember 2003 termasuk mati lemas, jangkitan kuman dan masalah kesihatan lain.
Ini merupakan kes pertama mangsa dibunuh di kem latihan PLKN. Pada 2004, gadis berumur 17 tahun dirogol oleh jurulatih PLKN yang kemudiannya dipenjarakan selama 12 tahun.-malaysian insider
NS trainee believed beaten to death at camp...
Muhammad Suhaimi Norhamidi was unconscious when found by his friends in a bathroom at midnight with bruises at the back of his ears, Berita Harian quoted the police saying.
"As soon as he was found, the unconscious victim was sent to the Hospital Muadzam Shah, where he died," Rompin's deputy superintendent Johari Jahaya reportedly said.
Police are investigating the incident further.
His father, Norhamidi Bakar, 46, said he last saw his son when he sent him away to camp a few months ago.
He added that Suhaimi had ambitions to join the police force.
Suhaimi was said to be healthy and had exercised with other National Service Training Department trainees earlier.
Police have arrested three other trainees aged 17, 18 and 21, at the Pinggiran Pelangi camp, to facilitate murder investigations.
The victim, Muhammad Suhaimi Norhamidi, was found unconscious on the bathroom floor of the camp at 12.04am and pronounced dead on arrival at Muadzam Shah Hospital.
Suhaimi had a bruise behind the ear, believed to have been caused by a blunt object.
The initial post-mortem report revealed that Suhaimi had died of brain haemorrhage.
Pahang Criminal Investigation Department deputy chief superintendent Mohd Haris Daud said the three trainees in custody were from Johor and Pahang.
He said initial investigations revealed that the victim had angered several trainees when he cut queue during breakfast on Sunday.
This resulted in a fist fight between the victim and the three detained trainees several hours later.
Mohd Haris said the fight erupted again at about 11.30pm and 30 minutes later, the victim was found unconscious on the bathroom floor.
There have been 22 deaths since the National Service Training Programme (PLKN) began in December 2003 with all the deaths due to drowning, viral infection and other medical reasons.
This is the first time a murder has been reported in a PLKN camp. In 2004, a 17-year-old trainee was raped by a camp instructor, who was later sentenced to 12 years in jail.
The PLKN was started by Putrajaya to foster friendship between youths of certain ages from different races and ethnic groups. It is also to address concerns that the country's various communities were becoming increasingly isolated from one another.-malaysian insider
