Datuk Mazlan Idris, the state assemblyman for Batu Talam, Pahang was murdered in July 1993 by the infamous Mona Fandey and his cohorts, his body found chopped into 18 parts, the following diagram showing exactly how:
Mazlan was lying on the floor face up with his eyes closed to wait for money to fall from the sky. Mona’s assistant Juraimi Hassan then chopped Mazlan’s head off using an axe. They then dismembered and partially skinned the body with various sharp materials, possibly including archery equipment.
Not a very nice thing to do when he’d earlier given them RM500,000 in cash and 10 land titles.
