KUALA LUMPUR: A policeman has been charged in the magistrate’s court here with murdering a fellow officer early this month.
Kpl Wan Masrul Faiezie Wan Mustapha, 33, who is attached to the Special Branch in the Bukit Aman police headquarters here, was charged with causing the death of L/Kpl Thivakar Thangavelu (pic), 37.
The offence was allegedly committed by the roadside at Jalan Negeri Sembilan, Bukit Persekutuan here between 4.11pm and 4.50pm on Feb 4.
Kpl Wan Masrul Faiezie was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.
No plea was recorded and no bail was offered.

Magistrate Erry Shahriman Nor Aripin fixed April 14 for mention.
Counsel Sheelan Arjunan is holding a watching brief for the victim’s family.
Kpl Wan Masrul Faiezie was unrepresented.
