Police official succumbs to stab wounds

A deputy police chief who was allegedly stabbed by one of his wives died on Saturday, said Hy Narin, Meanchey district police chief, yesterday.

“For this case, police have filed a lawsuit and forwarded it to the court, and police are searching for the suspect to send her to court, but until now the authorities have not found her,” Narin said.

According to the local commune chief, on August 19, Seng Nayheak, a garment factory worker for Kingdeer (Cambodia) Knitting Co in Kandal, stabbed her husband, Chhor Bohin, in the stomach and thigh following an argument at Bohin’s house in Meanchey district.

Bleeding profusely, Bohin was sent to Calmette Hospital by neighbours and relatives, while Nayheak allegedly escaped. Villagers said Bohin and Nayheak lived with each other for many years but had no children.

Bohin was known to have three wives – one a greengrocer and the other two garment workers.
