He had a contention with Leong, 52 around the time he went to sleep, prior to awakening to the unbearable pain.

As per Nottingham Post he said: “It was 10-20 seconds maybe, in that moment I believed that I am dreaming until the pain started to kick in. I said ‘what is happening?’ It was so painful. I felt it in my mouth, the taste – the acid had a strange taste.”
