A contractor was charged in the Penang Magistrate’s Court with the murder of bully victim T Nhaveen on June 9, 2017.

S Gopinath, 30, the fifth accused, was jointly charged with committing the act between 11pm and midnight near the Karpal Singh Learning Centre, Jalan Kaki Bukit, Gelugor.

No plea was recorded after the accused nodded his understanding on the charge read out to him, as the case is under the jurisdiction of the High Court.

The charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code provides for the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

Magistrate R Manomani set Friday (Dec 31) for case mention.

Deputy public prosecutors Yazid Mustaqim Roslan and Farah Aimy Zainul Anwar appeared for the prosecution.

On June 19, 2017, J Ragesuthen and S. Gokulan, both age 18, as well as two others who were then minors, were charged with the murder of Nhaveen, 18.
