IPOH: A workshop owner was executed in cold-blood, being shot at close range by an assailant at a restaurant in Taman Kota Jaya in Taiping.
Taiping OCPD Asst Comm Yusuf Mohd Diah said K. Govindaraju @ Murthy, 36, from Semanggol died after being shot on the neck on Tuesday at about 8.45am.
ACP Yusuf said Govindaraju's acquaintance, 37-year-old tyre factory worker A. Manivannan, was also shot on the right side of his neck.
"Both victims were having breakfast at the restaurant prior to the shooting incident.
"Two men on a motorcycle had approached and stopped in front of the restaurant when one of the two suspects got down from the vehicle and entered the premise," he said.
"The man, wearing a helmet, approached the table where the two victims sat, pulled out a pistol from his waist area and fired three shots at the victims before fleeing," he said, adding that there were several customers in the restaurant.
It is believed that Govindaraju died while being rushed at the Taiping Hospital while Manivannan is still being treated.
The case, ACP Yusuf said, was being investigated under Section 302 and Section 307 of the Penal Code for murder and murder attempt respectively.
