Chin refugee knifed by Indonesian in Malaysia
24 July 2015 — A Chin refugee man was stabbed on the right side of his chest by an Indonesian worker in Serdang, Kuala Lumpur at night on 22 July.
Cung Bawi is being treated at a Kajang hospital for his injuries after he was attacked with a knife around midnight by the Indonesian with three accomplices.
“The four Indonesian workers took him onto the third storey of the building under construction. Luckily, security guards at the site called the police and he was taken to hospital,” said Salai TL Thang, a Chin refugee in Malaysia.
“The Indonesian worker kept asking Bawi to give him a coil of wire for electricity but Bawi told him that it belonged to his boss. So, he didn’t give it to him. That’s the main reason behind the attack,” Thang added.
According to the Faiceu Media Group, all the construction workers ran away from the site in fear of raid and arrest by Malaysian authorities.
Bawi, originally from Hriangkhan village, Thantlang township, Chin State, is currently living in Pasar Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, with his wife and their young child.#
