Request to belt out a rock anthem denied

A wedding band found out the danger of ignoring requests on Friday night in Kandal province’s Koh Thom district. The 23-year-old band leader had been instructed by the man who hired his band to play only traditional Khmer music, but a guest, 23, did not take kindly to his refusal to play a rock song.

During a break, the requester hit the victim’s head with a belt several times before fleeing, police said. The victim was hospitalised, and the suspect was arrested that night. NOKORWAT
