The cause is a misunderstanding about planting trees near their house.

The victim, who was in his 60s, was found lying unconscious in the house’s kitchen by his wife.

Kelantan acting police chief Datuk Muhamad Zaki Harun said in a statement that the police received information about the incident at about 12.20 pm.

The investigation found a misunderstanding between the victim and his neighbour, who was also in his 60s.

According to him, the man is said to have scolded the victim for planting trees in the road area, making it difficult for the suspect’s vehicle to pass through the route.

The victim suffered wounds and swelling on the back of the head and scratches on his hands and was sent to Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital here for autopsy.
