Cops un­sure why ex-AG’s driver was shot

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Po­lice are un­sure of the mo­tive be­hind the shoot­ing of for­mer at­tor­ney-gen­eral (AG) Tan Sri Ab­dul Gani Patail’s driver on Tues­day.

Am­pang Jaya po­lice chief ACP Hamzah Alias told theSun that po­lice have not ar­rested any sus­pects yet but gave an as­sur­ance that a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way.

“We can­not spec­u­late on the mo­tive of the shoot­ing be­cause we have not caught the sus­pects in­volved. It is not right to say that it is linked to the for­mer AG.”

He said that the po­lice are cur­rently ques­tion­ing eye­wit­nesses.

In the in­ci­dent, the 40-yearold vic­tim was at the front door of his house when two men, in their 30s, without crash hel­mets rode up to him on a mo­tor­cy­cle. One of them fired a shot af­ter the other called out his name.

They then sped off on their mo­tor­cy­cle.

Hamzah said the driver was shot in the leg and has been warded at the Am­pang Hos­pi­tal and is con­di­tion his re­ported to be sta­ble.
