Solaris Dutamas pub attack adds to spate of violence nationwide
Sentul police chief ACP R. Munusamy said six men fought among themselves in the club last week, resulting in their expulsion by bouncers.
The management later lodged a police report against three men who started the brawl. Two of them were arrested and charged while the other went on the run, he said.
“We believe the group returned on Wednesday to attack the management because of the police report,” he said.
A car jockey and cashier of the club were slashed to death outside Destiny Club while another unidentified victim is in critical condition after they were attacked by a mob wearing ski masks and armed with machetes.
Another patron said two of his fingers were severed as he tried to escape (see accompanying story). It remains unclear if there were more victims who suffered injuries following the attack.
This is not the first murder involving the club. On February 8, one N. Asok Kumar, 30, got into a fight there.
He was severely beaten in front of a convenience store near the club and was later dropped off in Brickfields. Asok was rushed to Kuala Lumpur Hospital but died about an hour later.
Closed circuit television footage from outside the club showed a group of masked parang-wielding men alighting from two cars at about 11pm.
A few of the assailants immediately attacked S. Mogan, 21, who was manning the car jockey service counter while the others went into the club, that was filled with people watching a “Dance Floor Queen Battle” performance.
The armed men attacked cashier R. Mythurai, 23, chopping off her right hand. She later died at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
The third victim, identified only as Allen, was also slashed. Bernama later quoted Munusamy as saying Allen was the club’s disc jockey.
A police source said there were no CCTV cameras inside the club, adding that police arrested six suspects, aged between 21 and 29, at about 2am.
The nation has seen a rash of chilling violent attacks over the past two weeks. They include:

“We received a call via MERS 999 that a man armed with a parang had slashed another man in front of a pub at Publika, Solaris Dutamas.
“Based on CCTV footage from the area, two vehicles had stopped in front of the pub and at least six suspects armed with parang and wearing masks got out.
