“While the victim was standing outside his house as he was feeling sick after consuming some alcohol, a car suddenly pulled up outside the house.

“Two people alighted from the car and one of them stabbed the victim in his back and head, while the other suspect hit the victim’s head with a helmet before they fled in the car,” Wan Kamarul said in a statement today.
