Man killed while getting medicine for sick fiancee

He wanted to buy medicine for his sick fiancee.

But Subramaniam, 30, never got a chance.

He was killed before he got the medicine.

The canopy dealer had parked his motorcycle in front of a supermarket in Subang Jaya, Malaysia on Friday evening (May 22).

Then, six men carrying parangs approached him and started attacking, slashing him several times on the body.

Subramaniam tried to escape by running to the main road.

But he was hit by a car, which smashed into him and almost severing his head.

The victim's fiancee, identified only as Jessie, said  the face was crushed so badly that she could not recognise him.

The 25-year-old bank executive said she was only able to identify Subramaniam from his slippers and motorcycle.

The pair were engaged three months ago and lived in a low cost terrace house nearby.

District police chief Assistant Commissioner Yahaya Ramli said: "(Subramaniam) tried running away but only made it as far as 10m before he was knocked by a white car, believed to be a Proton." 

He continued: "His assailants fled the scene after they saw the car crash into Subramaniam. The driver also took off."

A gang war has been ruled out as the cause of the attack though ACP Yahaya said that police "believe it was an act of revenge to settle an old score."

Last year, Subramaniam was released after a five-year jail term for causing grievous hurt to a relative.

Police are reviewing CCTV footage of the incident.

The case is being investigated for murder.
