GEORGE TOWN: A heated family argument about financial matters led to the murder of a 42-year-old businessman early yesterday.
K. Gobinathan was stabbed and beaten up repeatedly by at least five assailants, believed to be his relatives, outside a house in Lorong Kulit, just past midnight.
A police spokesman said the group confronted Gobinathan and a heated argument ensued.
He said the argument turned violent and escalated into a brawl, resulting in Gobinathan being attacked with parang and sticks.
"The victim tried to put up a fight but was overpowered. He suffered head injuries and multiple stab wounds," the police spokesman said.
A witness, who declined to be identified, said the assailants also smashed the victim's motorcycle and the windscreen of another car parked nearby. They also damaged the victim's house.
Gobinathan's body was dumped by the roadside outside a car showroom in Jalan Masjid Negeri about 3.30am.
"We believe the victim was dragged to the showroom," he said.
The body was sent to Penang Hospital for a post-mortem.
Gobinathan married a teacher, in her 30s, last year, and his relationship with several of his relatives turned sour shortly after due to family squabbles.
Police have identified three suspects, two of whom are the victim's relatives.
