Ahmad Baba’s plea was recorded before Sessions judge Mohd Sabri Ismail here on Wednesday (Aug 30).
According to the facts of the case, the accused allegedly hit Zulhelmi Md Yusof, 42, with a 54cm-long steering wheel lock, causing serious injuries.
The offence was allegedly committed at a house at Jalan Kesidang 2/17, Lorong Pandan in Melaka Tengah district at 6.30pm on Aug 22.
Ahmad was charged under Section 326 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt, which provides for imprisonment of up to 20 years, a fine or whipping upon conviction.
DPP Muhammad Nazrin Ali Rahim urged the court not to grant bail as the victim lived right next door to the accused.
The court then denied bail to Ahmad, who was unrepresented, and fixed Oct 24 for next mention.
