Hamida Laka, a 29-year-old Indonesian, succumbed to her injuries at around 5.10pm, about two hours after she was referred to the district hospital by her brother and colleague.

Initial investigations revealed that the attack happened at a vegetable plantation at Kampung Mesilau in Kundasang, where the lovers work.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman when disclosing this said the boyfriend was picked up at the staff quarters at 6.40pm.

“Before succumbing to her stab injuries to the chest and back, the victim told her brother and a workmate the identity of her attacker,” said Jalaluddin.

Following her revelation, police picked up the 25-year-old Timorese and will be investigating the case under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder. He, however, denied killing her.

If found guilty, the suspect faces the mandatory death penalty.

If a beach scenery is the ultimate requirement for your next vacation, then these Malaysian beaches are simple (picture) perfect for you!

 1. Bukit Keluang Beach 

If there's any place on the east coast that can offer the best of both worlds, Bukit Keluang (Keluang Hill) in Besut, Terengganu is definitely high on the list with its beautiful combo of caves, hills and a white sandy beach. 

At the bottom of the hill, you can have your usual beach activities (snorkeling, kayaking, wind surfing, building sandcastles, swimming, etc).

If you're up for a little exploring, there are the caves for you check out. Don't worry, the trails are pretty easy. But the one walkway you should really follow is the one ascending around the hill.
