‘Good job, Royal Malaysia Police’

PETALING JAYA: Congratulations on the swift arrest of the suspect that fired his gun inside the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail tells police.

“Congratulations Royal Malaysia Police over the prompt arrest of the KLIA shooting suspect,” the Home Minister posted on his Facebook.

Police had previously named 38-year-old Hafizul Harawi as the suspect in the shooting.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain confirmed the arrest when contacted about the matter.

On Sunday morning, shots were heard ringing out in Terminal 1 of KLIA when a man attempted to kill his estranged wife in the arrival hall.

Travel agency owner Farah Md Isa, better known as Farah Cie, was waiting for her clients’ return from umrah at the time.

Her husband, Hafizul, threw a firecracker in her direction, causing injuries to two members of the public around her, before he opened fire at her at close range.

Her bodyguard saved her life but was shot in the process.

Hafizul then escaped to his car that was parked at Block C of the airport car park.

He was caught in Kota Baru yesterday afternoon.

The bodyguard was reportedly still unconscious in hospital as of press time.
