Cops currently seizing property from main suspect in bodyguard-beating case

SHAH ALAM: The police are currently in the midst of seizing property from the main suspect who allegedly assaulted two bodyguards for fasting.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said Bukit Aman was investigating the suspect under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act.

"I was told that they (Bukit Aman) are in the midst of seizing his property," he told reporters at the Selangor police headquarters on Sunday (April 18).

Comm Arjunaidi said South Klang police have obtained a five-day remand order on the main suspect.

It was reported that five men - including the man who assaulted his two bodyguards for fasting - have been arrested as they are believed to be involved in illegal gambling and loan shark activities.

When asked, he said police have yet to find evidence linking the suspects to secret society activities.

Prior to this, the police seized RM28.54mil worth of gold bars and cash in foreign denominations following a raid in Bukit Tinggi on Wednesday (April 14).

The initial investigation revealed that the suspects have been involved in illegal gambling and loan shark activities.

On Wednesday, the police received a report on the man who was supposedly upset that his two bodyguards were fasting during Ramadan.

The complainant - a 26-year-old bodyguard - told the police that the incident occurred at a condominium in Jalan Pinang.

He claimed that he and a colleague were slapped after telling the suspect they were fasting when he asked them.

The complainant added that they then followed the suspect to his house in Batu Nilam, Klang, where they were beaten with a cane.

A gun was also allegedly pointed at one of the bodyguards.

In Putrajaya, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin said stern action would be taken against those who had allegedly assaulted two bodyguards for fasting.
