GEORGE TOWN, June 19 — Four of the five teenagers involved in the death of 18-year-old T. Nhaveen in a horrific bullying case will be charged with murder today.
According to Northeast district police chief ACP Anuar Omar, the four will face a murder charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code which carries a mandatory death sentence upon conviction, as well as a charge of causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons to Nhaveen’s friend, T. Previin, under Section 326 of the Penal Code.
"One suspect will be the prosecution's witness and will be released on bond," he said in a WhatsApp message to the media.
All four are expected to be brought to the magistrate’s court to face the charges at noon.
Nhaveen, who was savagely beaten up and sodomised with an object on June 10, died without regaining consciousness after five days in a coma in hospital.
According to police, a post mortem revealed that his cause of death was due to blunt force trauma to the head.
