Ex-IGP's son dies of brain haemorrhage

SHAH ALAM: The son of former Inspector-General of Police Tun Hanif Omar died after falling unconscious beside his car in Shah Alam.

It is learnt that Ahmad Jamal Omar, 40, was driving his Honda Accord, sending a friend home.

When they reached the destination, Ahmad Jamal got out of the car but fainted at about 4.20am yesterday.

Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Zahedi Ayob said the friend then alerted the police but Ahmad Jamal had died by the time rescuers arrived at the scene.

“A post-mortem conducted on the body showed that he died of brain haemorrhage,” he added.

Current IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar extended his condolences to Ahmad Jamal Omar’s family.

“We are investigating what actually happened to him,” he said.

Ahmad Jamal, who was the youngest of four siblings, was reco­vering from an aneurysm surgery.

He was laid to rest yesterday at the Bukit Kiara Muslim cemetery in Kuala Lumpur.

Former Mr Asia and multiple Mr Malaysia winner Terry Gallyot, who chatted with Ahmad Jamal on Facebook Monday night, said he was shocked to hear of Ahmad Jamal’s death.

“I was communicating with him just hours ago. We even made plans to meet up for Christmas,” said Gallyot.

He added that he and Ahmad Jamal were old friends but had not seen each other for years.
