IPOH: Two brothers, who had three months ago borrowed money from loan sharks for their mother's funeral, were found hanged to death Friday.
Hew Kong Chen, 43, and Hong Weh, 38, were hanging by the neck from the ceiling in the dining room of their rented home in Taman Badri Shah in Bukit Merah at noon.
Their brother, Kong Han, a welder, said they had to borrow money for their mother's funeral as they did not have much.
“Mother used to give them money when she was alive,” he said.
Kong Han said he left the house at about 11am and returned an hour later to find both his brothers dead.
Acting Ipoh OCPD Supt Ahmad Termizi Abdul Haq said police found no foul play in the incident.
