The victim called the insurance agent to inform him that he could no longer pay and was disinterested with the policy and wanted to cancel it. Upon hearing this, the insurance agent threatened to kill the man if he chose to cancel the policy.

He also told the victim that he would pay for his policy for three months to complete the one-year period the victim subscribed to,” said Southwest district police chief Superintendent Kamarul Rizal Jenal to NST.

Kamarul added that the insurance agent also told the victim that he would “cut him” if the latter went to the insurance company to cancel the policy.
