PETALING JAYA (Bernama): An estate worker was fined RM6,000 or six months imprisonment by the Sessions Court here Thursday (April 4) for ramming his car into a policeman who was on anti-crime rounds last year.

Judge Norshila Kamaruddin imposed the sentence on Mohd Sofi Abd Rahman, 30, after he pleaded guilty to an alternative charge of using criminal force to prevent the policeman, Constable Abdul Rahim Abdul Rahman, from carrying out his duty.

According to the facts of the case, the accused was observed to be behaving in a suspicious manner by the policeman as he was carrying out anti-crime patrols in the Serdang area.

The victim then approached the accused while showing his police authority card but the accused became aggressive and entered his car before speeding off in an attempt to escape.

The accused then made a U-turn and rammed the motorcycle ridden by the policeman twice before the policeman fired a shot at the tyre of the car. The suspect was subsequently arrested.

The offence was alleged to have been committed at Jalan Besar, Taman Serdang Utama, Seri Kembangan, here at 1 pm on Aug 15 last year.

The accused was charged under Section 353 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum jail term of two years or a fine or both. - Bernama
