PUTRAJAYA: Businessman boss who has allegedly beaten his two bodyguards and threatened them with a gun because they were fasting during Ramadan has been arrested and remanded.
Four men, said to be his employees, were also arrested and remanded to assist the investigation into the alleged assault.
Minister of Home Affairs Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin said if the allegation is true the authorities will take a stern action against the suspect.

The victims lodged a police report yesterday (April 14) alleging that their boss was angry because they were fasting during Ramadan.
They also alleged that the boss ordered his other men to take them to his house in Batu Nilam, Klang and beat both of them on their backs with a cane.
South Klang district police said the employer also took a pistol from one of his men and pointed it at them while insulting them.
The case is being investigated under Sections 324,506 and 298 of the Penal Code.
All suspects will be remanded at the Klang.
Court tomorrow.
