According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the student was found “enjoying a romantic moment with a lady.” “Enraged at the father’s intrusion, the 21-yr-old suspect landed on him with blows and kicks, before inflicting deep cuts on his head and arms with a machete,” the DCI said on Twitter. Members of the public are said to have heard the man wailing and quickly rushed to the scene. They discovered the man bleeding profusely and he succumbed to his injuries before he could be rushed to hospital. By this time, the student had disappeared from the infuriated mob and sought refuge at a friend’s house. Police officers traced him to the house and arrested him moments later. He is to be arraigned in court on Wednesday.
