KAJANG: An assistant district enforcement officer remains determined to carry out his duties, even though he was attacked with three Molotov cocktails on Thursday.
The 35-year old, who has been working with the technical and enforcement unit at the Hulu Langat District Office for the past eight months realised something was wrong when he found shards of glass and burn marks in his porch as he was about to leave for work at about 6.30am.
The officer also found a plastic bag containing seven live bullets as he was inspecting the damage to his car.
Kajang Deputy OCPD Supt Abdul Ghani Mohamad Ji said police were immediately alerted of the incident that occurred at one of the government quarters in Section 14, Bandar Baru Bangi.
“One of the explosives was found in his yard while the rest were discovered in his porch. There were burn marks where the explosives landed,” said Supt Abdul Ghani.
Supt Abdul Ghani said that that there was no eyewitness at the time of the incident and that no closed-circuit television cameras were installed in the area.
“Several exhibits have been recovered from the site including fire debris, a pair of white rubber gloves, two clear plastics containing seven 9mm bullets, six glass shards from the bottles, a 100ml bottle and a cigarette butt,” he added.
He said the bullets were discovered with a pair of gloves in the yard about a few metres away from the enforcement officer’s car, adding that no fingerprints were found at the scene.
Supt Abdul Ghani added that a background check on the enforcement officer found that he is involved in activities against sand theft, illegal waste sites, illegal land use and violations.
“The case is being investigated for criminal intimidation and not possessing a licence or permit for firearms,” added Supt Abdul Ghani.
