KUALA LUMPUR: A love triangle is believed to be at the centre of the incident involving a booby trap utilising a hand grenade in Kampung Baru Subang, Sungai Buloh on Saturday.
Sungai Buloh police chief Supt Junaidi Bujang said they believed this was the case after questioning a former soldier, aged 50, following his arrest at the Pahlawan 2 Apartments in Taman Tun Perak here at 9pm Saturday.
He said the suspect was unhappy that his wife was seeing someone else - the cousin of the person whose car was damaged in the incident.
"The suspect accused the cousin of running away with his wife, and police believe it was him who was the target," he said.
He added that police also seized two handphones and two cars, a Myvi and a Honda Civic, from the suspect to assist investigations.
In the 6.45am incident Saturday, the victim, Chong May Lun, 40, had a close shave when a hand grenade placed under a rock with its safety pin removed went off as she drove her car over it on her way to work from home.
She was unhurt by the blast, but the rear fender of her Toyota Vios came off and shrapnel penetrated the boot and rear passenger seats. - Bernama
