BALING, MALAYSIA, March 31, 2001: Three men were arrested yesterday in connection with the death of a Hindu priest who was found with severe head injuries at his residence at the Sri Subramaniam temple on Thursday morning. The trio -- aged 16, 17 and 21 -- were all unemployed. S. Munugesen, 41, an Indian national, was found dead, sprawled in a pool of blood, at about 9am on Thursday by a temple employee. Police recovered a video player, a telephone and money from the suspects. Baling district OCPD Supt Hassan Ismail said one of the suspects had led the police to an axe, which was used in the attack. The motive appears to be robbery.
