Cambodia News (Svay Rieng): On December 9, at 11:35 am, a 33-year-old man, Pai Phat, was found dead in a ploughed field next to a pond in Svay Koy village, Svay Teab district, Svay Rieng.

Before the incident, the victim was down by the water digging a hole for fishing, when a 29-year-old Vietnamese man, Ngeing Jitang, who was ploughing the field, backed into the victim with his tractor. The man said that he didn't know that the victim was there, but after he saw that he had killed him, he was afraid, so he left the scene with his tractor.

The Vietnamese man has been detained for questioning and case preparation.
