Mohd Masri Maguni (pic), who was attached to the Kepala Batas police station, died at 5.20am after being admitted at the hospital three days ago.

According to Kota Setar OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Rozi Jidin, the 58-year-old Masri collapsed suddenly on Saturday (March 21) at a roadblock in Alor Setar, and was rushed to hospital.
