GEORGE TOWN: An assemblyman who had criticised the police over the death of the five alleged Gang 04 members on Monday received five bullets at his house.
Seri Delima assemblyman R.S.N. Rayer said his 11-year-old nephew made the discovery at the front porch of his house in Island Park here.
He said the boy saw the plastic bag with the bullets at about 7.50am yesterday.
“My nephew picked it up thinking that it was chocolate.
“He was shocked to see the bullets inside the bag,” he said when met at the courthouse here.The police, he said, had viewed the CCTV recordings of his house as well as that of his neighbour’s.
He urged the police to conduct a thorough investigation as he feared for his and his family members’ safety.
Asked whether he believed it could be related to the five Gang 04 members, the lawyer said he did not want to speculate on it.
“I don’t know the motive. Let the police investigate,” he said.
He added that he was merely helping out the families as an assemblyman to claim the bodies and lodged police reports.
“The families called me for assistance, so I calmed them and helped them out,” he added.
Penang CID chief Senior Asst Comm Mazlan Kesah confirmed the case and said Rayer also received an SMS death threat at about the same time he received the bullets.
“We are investigating the case for criminal intimidation and illegal possession of firearms.”
