SHAH ALAM: A 46-year-old businessman was charged at the magistrate's court here with issuing a death threat against a 41-year-old woman for allegedly failing to settle a loan. 

Mahinder Singh s/o Bachittar Singh from 68, Jalan SS14/2D, Subang Jaya claimed trial to the charge of making the threat against a Dirba Daisy at Citylink Express Sdn Bhd in the Petaling district at 5.05pm on Sept 16. 

Magistrate Surita Budin set bail at RM2,000 in one surety and fixed Jan 28 for hearing. 

The offence carries a fine or a jail term of up to seven years or both. 

Earlier lawyer M. Manoharan, who was holding a watching brief for the victim, said the accused should be denied bail as he had committed a serious offence of issuing a death threat. 

He added that it was a landmark case where it was the first time a loan shark was charged for criminal intimidation against his customer. 

“The accused lives very close to the victim and he had on several occasions threatened to harm her,” he added. 

Prosecuting officer Chief Inspector Adnan Suratman said the accused, represented by S. Surendran, was facing a bailable offence and he proposed that bail be set at RM2,000.
