MyWatch advisor S. Gobi Krishnan.
PETALING JAYA: The police need to interview anti-crime NGO MyWatch chief R Sanjeevan to confirm "disturbing" leads, said MyWatch advisor S. Gobi Krishnan.
"Bukit Aman CID chief Datuk Hadi Ho said that the police had some very disturbing information regarding the case and needed to interview Sanjeevan to confirm these leads," Gobi Krishnan told The Star Onlineon.
He and Sanjeevan's father P Ramakrishnan met with Hadi as well as his deputy Datuk Mazlan Mansor and Federal Principal Assistant Director of Serious Crime (D9) Datuk Huzir Mohamed on Thursday.
The police will be reopening an investigation into a threat Sanjeevan received in January this year, made via phone call from a landline traced to a police station in Jelebu.
"The caller was threatening to shoot him, so Sanjeevan lodged a police report. But it was classified as No Further Action (NFA).
“Hadi has agreed to reopen the investigation," Gobi Krishnan said.
He also raised the issue of six police officers being allowed into the operating theatre during Sanjeevan's surgery.
"Hadi promised to investigate this," he added.
Doctors expect Sanjeevan to only be able to start speaking by next week, as he is still recovering from his surgery.
Sanjeevan, 29, was shot once at traffic light junction in Taman Cempaka on July 27.
A pillion rider on a motorcycle opened fire, and a bullet pierced his ribcage.
He is now warded at Hospital Serdang after being transferred from Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital in Seremban.
Police believe revenge could be a motive for the shooting, with former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan claiming that the assassination attempt on Sanjeevan could have been due to his allegations of police involvement in organised crime and other illegal activities.
Further controversy arose when Sanjeevan's family refused to hand the bullet from Sanjeevan's ribs over to the Negri Sembilan police after it was removed.
They said they did not trust the state police and wanted Bukit Aman to handle the case.
The bullet in question is currently at Cheras forensic lab.
