KUALA LUMPUR: The bespectacled man, or “Sei Ngan Chai” in Cantonese, sought by city police in connection with the murder of Arab Malaysian Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi has been identified as 44-year-old Kong Swee Kwan.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the man was identified based on their interrogation of two others, including a taxi driver who is being held under remand.

“Kong’s last known address is 132, Jalan Pelandok 4, Taman Suntex Batu 9, Cheras, Selangor.

“He has a previous record for possession of stolen goods and extortion,” SAC Ku told reporters at the city police headquarters yesterday. Police believe that Kong is still in the country.

SAC Ku said that police also arrested a 42-year-old man, an odd job worker who surrendered to the police on Monday night.

“He is believed to have been with the taxi driver, who allegedly drove Kong away moments after the shooting,” he added.

He said the taxi driver led police to an apartment in Brickfields where they found a Walther 9mm pistol.

“Ballistic results, however, showed that the weapon was not the one used in the shooting,” he said.

SAC Ku also said that the two women trustees of the Kuan Yin Temple at Jalan Ceylon have been arrested and questioned to shed light on the motive behind the murder.

“The two women were picked up about 1.30pm on Monday near the temple,” he said.

On July 29, Najadi, 75, was gunned down and his wife was injured in the hand when a man opened fire at them at a car park outside the temple. The gunman was seen escaping in a taxi with the taxi driver and another man.

Those with information on the whereabouts of Kong should contact the police at 03-2115 9999 or visit the nearest police station.
