A court in Malaysia has sentenced two Indian-origin men to separate jail terms for brutally assaulting a Nigerian that led to his death.
Judge Noor Azian Shaari of the high court in Shah Alam, the capital of the Malaysian state of Selangor, sentenced V. Ganesan, 29, to one year in jail and T. Kumar, 29, to seven years in jail for causing grievous injuries to Nwabudike Emmanuel Chukwuma that led to his death in April last year, the New Straits Times reported Wednesday.
According to the report, the perpetrators of the crime had accused the Nigerian of cheating them and had gone to the latter's home in Taman Puncak Jalil township in Selangor at 2.30 a.m. April 23 last year.
After a heated argument, Kumar punched Chukwuma on his body, face and head. He then dragged the victim to the road outside and kicked him there as well.
Ganesan punched and kicked Chukwuma twice.
The duo were arrested after neighbours of Chukwuma alerted the police.
Chukwuma was taken to a hospital where he died two days later.
In the ruling, the judge said that the two should not have taken the law into their own hands and ordered that they serve their respective jail terms from the date they were arrested, April 23, 2012.
