On Saturday, I recieved an e-mail from the uni officer stating that 4 of our students have been attacked near the campus. 2 were attacked in a restaurant about 2 minutes drive away from the uni and another two was attacked when their car was rammed and surrounded by 3 other cars. I could not imagine the ugliness of the incident right until i read it from the Star Paper when it was published today. It was said to be an incident of mistaken identity by the authorities.

A Sri Lankan, Sarankan Sriskandarajah who was 1 of the 4 person that was attacked passed away on Sunday morning. Although I do not know him personally, I would like to voice out my condelences to his family. This is the worst nightmare that a family could have when they send their family member to other country to further their education, thinking that this has got to be one of the best things that they have given to him. Having your loved ones away from you and meeting them in this kind of condition when you can finally be with them is a total heart breaker.

Curse the bastards that go around slaining everyone without any thoughts. I hope they suffer a painful death for what they have done towards the innocents.

Here's the news taken from The Star


Sri Lankan dies in attack

PETALING JAYA:
A 22-year-old student who was killed by a group of parang-wielding men is believed to be a victim of mistaken identity.

Sarankan Srikandarajah from Sri Lanka was having lunch at 3.45pm on Wednesday in Taman Tasik Semenyih, just a two-minute drive from Nottingham University in Kajang where he studied, when 10 men in three cars pulled up and attacked three students.

A witness said the assailants hacked and slashed the victims.

“It was horrible and everyone was stunned as they attacked my friends for almost two minutes before leaving without saying a word,” the witness, who requested to remain anonymous, said.

Sarankan, a final-year student, suffered multiple slash wounds, losing part of his heels and fingers as he tried to kick away the parang.

He died at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre at 7am yesterday.

A few minutes after the attack on Wednesday, another student of the same university was attacked two kilometres away when the same assailants blocked his car and began slashing him.

“They rammed my car to a stop in the middle of the road. One of them opened my door and began slashing me until one of his gang members said in Tamil: ‘He is not the person’.

“He stopped attacking me and got back in his car and drove off,” the victim, who also requested anonymity, said.

He suffered cuts on his thigh, hand and leg and needed 48 stitches.

It is learnt that many of the students living the area are afraid for their safety following the vicious attack.

Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Sakaruddin Che Mood confirmed the incidents.

Forsakengel.
