Duo charged for machete attack captured on video


SEREMBAN - Two friends who were allegedly caught on a video clip mercilessly hacking a woman were charged at the Sessions Court here on Tuesday.

K.Saravanan, 26, and Ahamad Mohd Latif, 23, claimed trial to the offence before judge Kamarudin Kamsun.

They had allegedly attacked Saravanan's wife D.Megala, 24, with machetes outside a row of single storey terrace houses in Taman PD Utama at 6.40pm on Oct 1.

The duo, who were unrepresented, were charged under section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.

If convicted they can be jailed for up to 20 years.

In the minute-long clip, the suspects who were wearing face masks were seen attacking the woman in full view of neighbours.

The suspects then escaped in a car driven by an accomplice.

The duo were however caught by police hours later.

The victim has since been admitted for treatment at the Port Dickson Hospital.

Kamarudin fixed Nov 13 for re-mention.
