Nhaveen, 18, has been declared “brain dead” at the Intensive Care Unit of the Penang Hospital.

Nhaveen's aunt said he was supposed to leave Kuala Lampur for musical studies. 

“He loves music. He worked as a promoter after SPM to gather some pocket money to head to KL to study. Nhaveen is so friendly and jovial. I spoke to him last week and he wanted to come over to my place for chicken curry. But looking at the way he is now, I do not know if he will come back at all,” Naveen’s aunt said when met at the Penang Hospital yesterday.

Nhaveen has been declared brain dead at the Penang Hospital. Nhaveen is injured in the head, hip and anus. There were also burn marks on his back. Doctors treating him said his anus was torn badly, likely due to a blunt object being inserted inside. Police immediately arrested five men, aged 16 to 18, for investigations for rioting.

AR Rahman shared this post in his official Twitter handle and tweeted "Dear Nhaveen, prayers & love for a speedy recovery. Let all acts of savagery end & people come to senses..Peace!"
