Witness Zahid Hasran, 28, described how two men engaged in a conversation for about 20 minutes before things took a violent turn, reported Harian Metro.

Zahid, who works at a nearby motorcycle repair shop, couldn’t hear the details of their discussion clearly due to his work.

He tried to intervene as the altercation escalated, but both men were too aggressive.

“Not a few minutes later, I saw them punching each other and I tried to stop the fight but didn’t dare approach because they were too aggressive and I warned to call the police.”

Law enforcement eventually arrived and separated the two, but it was too late for the victim, who had suffered serious head injuries.

An ambulance rushed him to nearby Machang Hospital, where he tragically passed away during treatment.
