PUCHONG: A quarrel over money between two Myanmar workers ended in one being hacked to death with a chopper, yesterday.
Htay Win, in his 30s, was found dead at a doublestorey house in Taman Puchong Utama at 3.30am.
A police patrol unit from Bukit Puchong was alerted to the incident by his housemate.
Serdang police chief Supt Abdul Razak Elias said the incident took place while Htay Win was drinking alone in the house he shared with seven others.
"Htay Win was confronted by a colleague who lived elsewhere and the two who were drunk, quarrelled and fought,"
Police, who had answered a call, found Htay Win dead with severe head injuries.
Abdul Razak said police were looking for a suspect, believed to be in his 20s, who worked at the same glass factory as the victim.
"We are still investigating the motive but it could be due to money matters."
A murder weapon was found beside Htay Win's body.
