A teenager was beaten to death and his brother seriously injured on Wednesday night after they were attacked by a group of men in Kampong Cham province’s Memot district.

Military police chief of Memot district Prom Vuthy said the two victims - Khy Nita, 19, and his brother Khy Vatey, whose age could not be confirmed - were attacked about 11:00pm on Wednesday night by a group of men driving motorbikes.  

Khy Nita was killed after being beaten during the attack.

Prom Vuthy said there was no evidence of a robbery and said he thought the attack was aimed exclusively at injuring the victims.

He added that the suspects in the case had not yet been identified, but confirmed that military police had launched an investigation in hope of arresting the perpetrators.

Memot district police chief Em Kosal declined to comment on the crime yesterday and deferred questions to his deputy police chief Keo Kimneang, who is in charge of criminal cases for the district.
However, the deputy police chief said he knew very little about the case in question.
