PETALING JAYA: MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan is out of danger but is still unable to communicate.
His father, P. Ramakrishnan, said Sanjeevan could move his eyes but could not speak or gesture yet as he has a tube down his mouth and was heavily sedated.
“The doctors said he has suffered some trauma that may cause him to not remember certain things.
“I don’t know when he will be able to talk to me. But he is improving and that’s all I care about,” he said, adding that Sanjeevan was being fed milk through the tube.
Sanjeevan, who heads the anti-crime watchdog group MyWatch, was shot by someone riding pillion on a motorcycle in Bahau, Negri Sembilan, on July 27.
Doctors successfully extracted the bullet after 18 days. He had earlier developed a critical blood clot in his heart and lungs.
The bullet has been sent to the Cheras forensics department. Sanjeevan remains in intensive care at the Serdang Hospital.
Ramakrishnan claimed that Negri Sembilan police officers were still waiting around his son’s ward.
“I just found out that a few days ago, some policemen from there had been interviewing the doctors here about my son,” he said.
Ramakrishnan said he had been given assurances by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar and Federal CID chief Datuk Hadi Ho Abdullah that Bukit Aman had taken over investigations into Sanjeevan’s shooting from the Negri Sembilan police.
This came after Ramakrishnan made a highly-publicised police report demanding that Negri Sembilan police stay out of the investigation into his son’s shooting.
He claimed that he had reason to believe some policemen from the state were involved in the attempt on Sanjeevan’s life.
