Melaka doctor discovers drugs on injured man involved in accident at NSE


MELAKA: A doctor from Alor Gajah Hospital discovered drugs in the possession of a seriously injured 27-year-old man, following an accident along KM238 of the North-South Expressway (NSE), near Alor Gajah Toll Plaza.

The patient, who had slipped into a coma in the incident, was rushed to Alor Gajah Hospital on Nov 27 and was later found to be high on the police wanted list.

Melaka deputy Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department chief Deputy Supt Mohd Akmal Abdullah said the 32-year-old doctor had handed over the patient's bag to police at 11.30am on Nov 27.

"The patient was found to be on the police wanted list, as he had four previous criminal records," he said on Monday (Nov 30).

DSP Akmal said police discovered ganja weighing about 955g and five packets of syabu weighing 65.9g, both with an estimated worth of RM4,000.

He said the suspect had lost control of his motorcycle and was found unconscious along the NSE on Nov 27.

DSP Akmal said the suspect was then rushed to Alor Gajah Hospital with severe head injuries and was transferred to Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital in Seremban when his condition worsened.

He said police have opened an investigation under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952, which carries a mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

He added that no arrest was made, as the suspect was still in a coma.
