PETALING JAYA: Three men have been detained in connection with the car-jacking and shooting of a Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) officer in Puchong.
The suspects, aged between 18 and 24, were arrested in Kota Baru, Kelantan, yesterday, said CID Director Comm Datuk Hadi Ho Abdullah.
A .38 revolver, believed to have been used in the crime, was also seized.
“We believe they are the culprits responsible for the crime. The matter is still being investigated. But as of now, we are confident of solving this case,” he said.
It was reported that two men had car-jacked MMEA administration director Nazaruddin Mat Ali and then shot him in Puchong, Selangor, on Jan 4. The men escaped with his Honda Accord.
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 car with Nazaruddin’s wife inside.
Later, the car was found abandoned in Jalan Persiaran Bangi, Sekyen 4 Tambahan, Bandar Baru Bangi, while Nazaruddin’s wife, Alawiyah Haron, was left unhurt at a petrol kiosk in the area.
Nazaruddin was reported to be in a stable condition at Serdang Hospital.
