According to Harian Metro, the authorities detained a 19-year-old after she was handed over by her mother around 8.15am today.
Hulu Terengganu district police chief DSP Mohd Adli Mat Daut said that the suspect attends the same school as the victim and she was spotted at the scene based on footage from a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera nearby.
The suspect rode a motorcycle to the victim’s house and the two spent time chatting in the living room before a fight broke out
Mohd Adli told Harian Metro, “While chatting in the living room, the suspect became angry before the situation turned into a fight and a struggle.”
“The suspect then took a kitchen knife before slashing the victim’s wrist several times until her hand was severed,” he added.
Earlier today, the suspect came to the Telemong Police Station along with her mother to give her statement to the police.
“However, her statement was suspicious and we found several injury marks on her arm and body before we detained her for further investigations,” Mohd Adli noted.
The case is currently being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code
Section 302 of the Penal Code states that whoever commits murder shall be punished with death.
Mohd Adli also added that the suspect will be taken to Marang Magistrate Court to apply for a remand order.
