PETALING JAYA: The main suspect who allegedly attacked his two bodyguards for fasting will be charged in court Thursday (April 22).
In a statement on Wednesday (April 21), Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the suspect will be charged under multiple sections of the Penal Code, including for voluntarily causing harm, criminal intimidation, and intentionally wounding the religious feelings of a person.
"Another suspect will also be charged under Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing harm," he said.
One of the suspects has been released, while two more have been granted bail and roped in as witnesses for the prosecution.
The charging of two suspects will be done at the Klang Magistrate's court, before the main suspect is taken to Kuala Lumpur to be charged under Section 323 of the Penal Code for causing hurt.
On April 14, police received a report on a 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 the suspect asked whether they were doing so.
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.
