Anti-crime watchdog MyWatch chief R. Sri Sanjeevan was shot this evening in Bahau and is listed to be in critical condition, police said today.

Sanjeevan was in his car, a silver-coloured BMW, with the window open while smoking a cigarette, when two men on a red LC motorcycle approached from the back at an intersection in Taman Awana Indah, Bahau.

Sanjeevan had earlier picked up a friend from the latter's home in the housing estate.

The pillion rider drew out a weapon and shot at Sanjeevan, hitting him in the right rib. The gunman then alighted from the motorcycle but the victim sped off.

The suspects then fled the scene, heading towards Rompin while the victim  drove on for 300m before his friend, B. Ramesh, took over the wheel and drove Sanjeevan to the Jempol Hospital.

Seremban police chief ACP Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the friend could not identify the suspects.
 
In an interview earlier this year, Sanjeevan said he has been receiving death threats but claimed he was not rattled as it came with the job.
 
MyWatch, or The Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force, rose to prominence after its patron, former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, made public several serious allegations in a few press conferences and interviews.

Chief among them were that politicians have been interfering with police work and that criminal elements have infiltrated the police force.

MyWatch had also claimed that it has in its possession evidence that top police officers were involved in criminal activities, including money laundering, gambling, prostitution and have direct links with underworld figures and kingpins.
