Malaysian police have arrested a 29-year-old Bangladeshi man over with the death of his countryman who was found buried at a construction site in Taman Mutiara Galla, reports Bernama, the state news agency.
Seremban police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Said Ibrahim said the incident was uncovered after the employer suspected something amiss when the victim did not turn up for work for some time and lodged a police report around 6.30 pm on Thursday.
Primary investigation found that the suspect had hit the 30-year-old victim, who was also his housemate, with a piece on wood on the head following a misunderstanding.
When the employer went to the work place, the suspect fled, but was caught by the employer, who then took him (suspect) to a police station, the police officer said.
"The suspect claimed he killed the victim and showed the location where the body was buried. He also showed the piece of wood used to hit the victim," he added.
The body was then sent to Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital for further action.
