A construction worker was decapitated, allegedly by a jealous co-worker, with his detached head and body thrown callously off a building under construction in Malaysia.
Kuala Selangor OCPD Supt Ruslan Abdullah said that the victim, a Bangladeshi, was killed by a colleague armed with a sword.
He said the suspect was jealous of the victim because he was well liked by his employer.
He added that the incident occurred between 3.30pm and 4.40pm on Thursday.
“Workers informed police that they had found a human head on the ground while the body was on some scaffolding near the 10th floor of the building,” he said when contacted Saturday, adding that police sent to the site confirmed the gruesome find.
He said investigations revealed that the victim was killed on the 11th floor of the building before he was thrown out of a window.
“The head fell to ground level but the body landed on the scaffolding near the 10th floor.
“Investigations revealed the victim was a 29-year-old Bangladeshi subcontractor working there.
“Further investigations revealed that another Bangladeshi subcontractor who had been working at the construction site for two years, went into hiding.
“However, we managed to apprehend the suspect in the wee hours of Saturday morning,” he said.
