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.
DPP Nor Diana Nor Azwa applied for a mention date as she had yet to receive the post-mortem and chemist reports.
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.
L/Kpl Thivakar was found dead with two bullet wounds in his head at Bukit Persekutuan on Feb 4. Two 9mm bullet casings were also found at the scene.
Investigations revealed that he died on the spot after being shot twice in the face.
