Five cops held over death of colleague
KLANG, June 8 — Five policemen have been detained to help in investigations into the ramming incident in Jalan Bunga Raya, Taman Gembira on Sunday that caused the death of a policeman.
Selangor police chief Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah said the suspects — three corporals, a sergeant and a sergeant major — were detained at the Klang Selatan police headquarters, early today.
He said the suspects, aged between 45 and 51, were with the victim, Cpl Mustaghni Tabri, 48, during an operation against illegal motorcycle racing.
“Initial investigations found that Mustaghni was not directly injured because of being hit by a helmet but was hit by other object, believed to have been thrown by one of the team's members.
“Police have found several objects, and are waiting the forensic analysis results to identify which object had been used,” he told reporters at the Klang Selatan police headquarters, here today.
However, he declined to elaborate more on the objects found.
In the 3.30am incident, Mustaghni who was in the midst of an operation against illegal racing was seriously injured when a motorcycle rammed into him.
He went into coma due to severe head injuries at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital. Mustaghni died at 11.45am at the hospital today.
Tun Hisan also said police had arrested six “Mat Rempit” (daredevil motorcyclists) on Wednesday, aged between 16 and 20 years, in connection with the incident. — Bernama
