KUALA LUMPUR, 3 Ogos (Bernama) -- Seorang pengawal keselamatan maut selepas

ditembak seorang lelaki di Lorong C 3/24 di Cheras Perdana, Kajang di sini,

menjadikannya kejadian tembakan kelima yang berlaku minggu ini.

Dalam kejadian pada kira-kira 1.30 petang tadi, Balamurali Balakrishnan, 36,

Ketua Polis Daerah Kajang ACP Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab berkata mangsa mati

di tempat kejadian manakala ibunya yang berada di bilik tidur rumah itu tidak

diapa-apakan.

"Suspek yang datang ke rumah mangsa menggunakan kereta Iswara berwarna hitam

dipercayai masuk melalui pintu yang tidak berkunci sebelum melepaskan empat das

tembakan yang menyebabkan mangsa mati di tempat kejadian," katanya ketika

Abdul Rashid berkata mangsa merupakan bekas banduan serta dibebaskan dari

penjara pada Jun dan dipercayai bekerja sebagai pengawal keselamatan di sebuah

stesen LRT dekat sini.

POLIS-TEMBAK 2 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

Beliau berkata siasatan awal mendapati mangsa pernah terbabit dengan lima

kes dadah dan polis akan menyiasat sama ada kejadian itu berunsurkan dendam atau

sebaliknya.

Mayat mangsa dibawa ke Hospital Serdang untuk bedah siasat.

Sementara itu, isteri mangsa, S.Punavaneswari, 28, berkata ketika kejadian,

beliau tiada di rumah kerana balik ke kampungnya di Seremban bersama anak lelaki

mereka.

"Kali terakhir saya bercakap dengan dia ialah semalam, tetapi dia tidak

menunjukkan reaksi yang pelik kerana selama ini pun dia memang jarang bercerita

mengenai hal peribadinya kepada saya," katanya kepada pemberita di tempat

kejadian.

Kejadian itu merupakan yang kelima minggu ini. Semalam, seorang peniaga emas

nyaris maut apabila tembakan orang yang cuba membunuhnya tersasar dan terkena

bahu kanan mangsa, yang ketika itu memberhentikan kenderaan di lampu isyarat

Jalan Makmur, Pandan Indah di sini.

Pada 29 Julai, Pengasas Arab Malaysia Bank Hussain Ahmad Najadi, 75, maut

manakala isterinya, 49, cedera parah apabila ditembak dari jarak dekat di parkir

kereta selepas keluar dari sebuah tokong Cina di Lorong Ceylon di sini.
