The incident took place in Kampung Gajah at about 2.30pm.

Perak Tengah district deputy police chief, Nik Rosdi Nik Yahya, said that when the authorities arrived at the scene, they found the victim being beaten up and had to restrain the suspect to end the commotion.

"The incident happened in front of the suspect’s house. He and his wife are in the process of getting a divorce. The victim is said be in a relationship with the man's wife," he said.

Nik Rosdi added that the victim, a father of three, was pronounced dead by a medical team at the scene. The suspect was arrested to facilitate investigations.
