Abd Rahman said Muhamad Hafiz, who would usually not go against his father's wishes, refused to take no for an answer, which resulted in a heated argument breaking out between them. He said the father then hit the victim, the eldest of 10 children, with a wooden club, causing him to lose consciousness.
