Two held over acid attack on duo

KUALA TERENGGANU (Star): Two men have been detained over the acid attack on a student and his friend in Kampung Padang Merchang.

Police believe the two, aged 32 and 39, were responsible for splashing acid on Mohd Fadzil Hanafi Idrus, 18, and Shahurzaman Salim, 38, in the village on Sunday.

“We are not ruling out the possibility that the motive for the attack was revenge. The suspects were detained in Kampung Padang Rusa and Kampung Padang Merchang,” Terengganu CID chief Asst Comm K. Manoharan said yesterday.

He said investigations showed that the suspects had allegedly argued and threatened the victims prior to the attack.

“We have not ascertained the real reason behind the incident. The suspects have been remanded until Feb 26,” he said, adding that both victims were being treated at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital.

During the incident, the victims were sleeping at a friend’s house with four others after watching a football match on tele- vision when they were attacked at about 5.10am.

Mohd Fadzil, who is waiting for his SPM results, suffered burns to the face, body and leg, while Shahurzaman, a fisherman, suffered burns on the face.
