KOTA KINABALU: A seven-year-old boy watched in horror as two men shot dead his oil palm plantation supervisor father.
Police in the east coast Beluran district have mounted a manhunt for the two men who also grabbed RM31,000 from Edoh Sultan, 37, after killing him on Thursday.
Beluran police chief Deputy Supt Shivananthan Velautham said yesterday that Edoh had received the money to pay estate workers.
He was heading back to the Nam Wah plantation in a tractor with his son by his side when the gunmen struck at about 5pm.
DSP Shivananthan said one of the men used a homemade shotgun.
Edoh was killed on the spot and the shotgun pellets injured his son on the hand.
The gunmen grabbed the money but let the boy go.
The boy ran 5km to the fuel depot for help.
DSP Shivananthan said police were only alerted at about 10.30pm and it took them six hours to reach the site due to the poor road conditions in the area.
