PAPAR: A man chose death to being caught by villagers for stealing a motorbike.

He jumped into the river at Kampung Gadong, Kimanis , to escape the wrath of villagers when they tried to apprehend him after suspecting him of the crime.

Villagers alerted the Fire and Rescue Services Department about the incident and a team of ten people rushed to the site at 1.20am where they tried to locate him.

“Our team tried to look for him both in the river as well as from the surface,” said Dunstan Peter, the Papar Fire and Rescue Services Department chief.

According to him, the suspect was recovered at 3.50pm by department divers about 300 metres from where he jumped.

The man identified as Mohd Zain Zainal, 21, was handed over to the police for further action but was  later pronounced dead after  emergency procedures.  – Nuzir Andi Samsiar / sayangsabah
