Body dumped in backseat of his car and parked near city police headquarters.
KUALA LUMPUR: A badly beaten Saudi Arabian student was found dead in his car 200 metres away from the district police headquarters in Jalan Dang Wangi yesterday.
A woman who works nearby noticed the car parked by the roadside at about 8.30am and was surprised to see the car still parked there at 7.30pm when she finished work.
Upon looking inside the car, she saw a shirtless man slumped in the back seat and quickly alerted the police.
The dead man has been identified as Alkhunaini Naif Abdullah Alqassim, 30, a student in Malaysia.
He had apparently visited a nightclub near the police headquarters with two friends who he later got into an altercation with.
“One of the friends was said to have created trouble and they were evicted from the club by bouncers,” said city CID chief Zainuddin Ahmad in a report in the New Straits Times Online.
Eyewitnesses told police that several men had beaten up Alkhunaini. He was found with injuries on his head, arm, neck and chest.
Police have classified the death as murder and have remanded three bouncers from the nightclub to help them in their investigations.
