KUALA LUMPUR - An elderly man died after being involved in a fight with an old friend believed to be over an RM250 debt outside of a restaurant at Jalan Prima 2, Metro Prima Kepong here, this morning.

Sentul district police chief ACP Beh Eng Lai said in the 6.45 am incident, the 76-year-old victim was beaten with a plastic chair by his 63-year-old friend.

"The victim then walked away after Rela members who were nearby broke up the fight, but he collapsed about 100 metres from the scene," he said in a statement today.

Beh said the suspect, who had no criminal record, was arrested at 11 am when he turned up at the Kepong Police Station to lodge a report regarding the incident, adding that the case was being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

Beh said the post-mortem examination conducted on the victim this afternoon had determined that the cause of death was due to heart problems caused by narrowed heart arteries.

"However, the investigation is still ongoing under Section 302 of the Penal Code until the investigation papers are referred to the Deputy Public Prosecutor's office," he told Bernama. - BERNAMA
