Three armed robbers shot dead


IPOH: Four armed robbers, who had just robbed a goldsmith of RM1.8mil in front of the Mydin Mall in Meru Raya, were caught in a shootout with the police which killed three of them.

Another robber managed to escape on foot during the shootout at a road junction 3km away from the Kedai Emas Sri Ayu, which they robbed at 10.55am yesterday.

In Kepala Batas, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said that the four men were involved in at least three robbery cases.

He confirmed that the robbers were gang members but declined to comment further as investigations were still pending.

Perak police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said an Ops Cantas Khas team tracked down the robbers' getaway car, a silver Proton Waja, at a nearby roundabout before a high speed chase ensued shortly after the robbery.

"The suspects opened fire and a bullet hit the bumper of the police vehicle. Subsequently, at a traffic light junction, the driver lost control of the getaway car and it skidded.

"The suspects got out and immediately started shooting at the police," he told reporters.

He added that two other police vehicles arrived at the scene and during the crossfire three of the robbers were killed.

"We believe the robber who got away was injured judging by the way he was limping into the oil palm plantation nearby.

"Our men have surrounded the area and are still on standby there to nab the suspect," said SDC Acryl Sani.

Police later recovered a Spanish made pistol and three bullets, plus 4kg of jewellery, two spent bullet casings, a parang and ski mask, from the scene of the shooting.

During our search for the remaining suspect at the plantation, our men managed to recover another firearm, a Smith & Wesson revolver with three live bullets," he added.

SDC Acryl Sani said footage from closed-circuit television cameras at the goldsmith shop showed that the robbers were in and out of the place within three minutes.

"Two of them entered the shop and smashed its showcase with hammers while another armed accomplice kept watch outside.

"A fourth man waited in the car, which we later found out in our investigations was reported stolen in Bayan Baru, Penang, on Oct 3," he said.

The identities of the three men are still unknown as they did not have any personal identification on them, he added.

PAS shortlists eight for Sungai Limau polls


KUALA LUMPUR: PAS has shortlisted eight candidates to contest in the Sungai Limau by-election, said party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

However, the Marang MP said that the candidates names would only be announced on Oct 21, in Kedah.

"All of the candidates are new faces and had never contested in the previous election.

"We are currently scrutinising each candidate to ensure that they are free from scandals, corruption and are well-accepted by the grassroots," he said after chairing a meeting at the party headquarters here yesterday.

The Sungai Limau state seat fell vacant following the death of its incumbent Tan Sri Azizan Abdul Razak, the former Kedah Mentri Besar, on Sept 26.
