KUALA LUMPUR: Five men who were arrested for allegedly beating a motorist to death after an accident in Taman Pelangi Semenyih 2, Kajang, last week, will be charged in court tomorrow.

Kajang district police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Zaid Hassan confirmed that all suspects would be charged at the Kajang Magistrate's Court.

The five suspects will be charged with murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

Last Wednesday, it was reported that a 42-year-old motorist, whose car had collided with a food delivery rider's motorcycle, was beaten to death by members of the public.

According to reports, following the collision with the motorcyclist, the man was chased by members of the public to Taman Pelangi Semenyih 2, before his car skidded and crashed into a fence.

Reports claimed that the man was dragged out of his car and had his hands and feet tied before he was assaulted.

Police later detained five Malaysian men aged between 22 and 52 in the Semenyih and Beranang areas to assist in the investigation.

Police also arrested two more men, aged 22 and 39, in Kajang, suspected of being involved in the incident.
