www.Xes.cx would like to send our deepest condolence to the family of Darren Kang Ten Hua, a Sheffield University law student who was killed at Desa Seri Hartamas on 3.30am, Tuesday morning (06/07/2004).
News Straits Time reported that:-
Darren and his 24 years old fiancee and his two friends were heading towards Uncle Don’s Restaurant for supper after they had some drinks in a pub opposite the restaurant. As Kang and his friends were about to be seated outside the restaurant, group of eight youths believed to be in their 20s seated in the next table, passed some rude remarks about his girlfriend’s blouse.
However, his fiance told the Guan Ming Daily that “When we were walking to the restaurant, Darren was walking behind me. I told him to hurry up but he wanted me to say “I love you” before he would oblige. Hence, I Did. However, after that a few guys started to give us queer stares. Darren was angered by this and he confronted them. At least 15-16 guys are starting him with bare hand. Although Darren was on the ground then, they did not stop attacking him. I tried to help him but I was stopped by a passer-by. While I was trying to call for help on my mobile phone, I heard one assailant shouted “kill him”. Then one of the assailants reached for a steel bar from the bush and hit Darren on the head. ”
Darren was later sent to University Malaya Hospital for medical treatment but it was too late.
