PETALING JAYA: A lorry carrying RM4mil worth of hard disks was hijacked by four parang-wielding men en route to the KL International Airport (KLIA).
The incident, which happened near the Kelana Jaya Customs complex along the Damansara–Puchong Expressway on Tuesday night, also left the lorry driver hospitalised when he suffered a heart attack.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said the 44-year-old driver had left the manufacturing plant in Sungai Way at 11.15pm. The lorry carried some 20 tonnes of the electronic devices.
“The lorry was followed by a four-wheel-drive escort. They travelled some 200m before stopping at a traffic light.
“Then three cars, a Hyundai Sonata, a Proton Waja and a BMW, pulled up next to them, blocking the lorry. The driver could not reverse as the escort vehicle was in the way,” he said.
Four men armed with parang alighted from the vehicles and smashed the windscreen of the lorry and dragged the driver out.
“He was not hurt but he suffered a heart attack and has been hospitalised. The suspects drove off with the lorry and the BMW, leaving the Sonata and Waja,” said ACP Arjunaidi.
He added that there were no CCTVs in the area and police were on the lookout for the assailants who are believed to be in their 20s.
