PETALING JAYA: Three men have been detained in connection with the car-jacking and shooting of a Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) officer.
The suspects, aged between 18 and 24 were arrested in Kota Baru, Kelantan on Monday.
Federal CID director Comm Datuk Hadi Ho Abdullah said police also recovered a .38 revolver, believed to have been used in the crime.
“We believe they are the culprits responsible for the crime.
“We will investigate the matter further but as of now, we are confident of solving this case,” he said when contacted.
It was reported that two men carjacked an MMEA administration director and then shot him in Puchong, Selangor on January 4.
The two men also escaped with the Honda Accord belonging to Nazaruddin Mat Ali, who was reported to be in stable condition at Serdang Hospital.
Nazaruddin, 35, who is with the finance division of the agency in Kuantan, was driving his car at 11am when it was rammed from behind by a Toyota Wish.
When he got out to inspect the damage, a man suddenly opened fire hitting him in the abdomen. They then escaped with the Honda Accord with Nazaruddin’s wife inside.
Later, the car was found abandoned in Jalan Persiaran Bangi, Sekyen 4 Tambahan, Bandar Baru Bangi.
The case is being investigated under Section 394 of the Penal Code.
