Two toll clerks shot in Seremban robbery
SEREMBAN, June 15 — A man fired a pump-gun at two toll clerks, injuring both of them, and seized RM2,000 they were transferring to the toll plaza office in a robbery here last night.
Toll clerks Nurijah Rosli, 24, and her colleague Mohd Haffiz Zamri, 26, were injured in the back and right leg respectively, said Seremban police chief ACP Saiful Azly Kamaruddin today.
He said the robbery occurred at 9.57pm when Nurijah, who was riding a motorcycle, and Mohd Haffiz, who was riding pillion, were transferring the money from the Seremban toll plaza north-bound exit of the North-South Expressway to the PLUS office at the north-bound entrance to the expressway.
A car blocked the path of the motorcycle and a man alighted and opened fire at the two clerks, Saiful Azly said.
“When the motorcycle and the two toll clerks fell to the ground, the robber grabbed a bag containing RM2,000 and the car sped off towards Sendayan.
“Investigation showed that three shots were fired with the pump-gun,” he said.
Nurijah and Mohd Haffiz were sent to Tuanku Jaafar Hospital for treatment.
Saiful Azly said police would view the recording of the closed-circuit television camera at the plaza to assist them in their investigation. — Bernama
