Umno polls: 'Palestinian battleground' for Klang Wanita chief post


KLANG: The race for the Klang Wanita Umno chief's post saw an intense battle between a prominent party warlord's daughter and the daughter-in-law of a former Umno strongman.

Datin Paduka Nor Hayati Onn is being challenged by Roselinda Abd Jamil, the division's former Puteri chief. Nor Hayati is the daughter of former Selangor speaker Tan Sri Onn Ismail while Roselinda is the daughter-in-law of the former Port Klang assemblyman, the late Datuk Zakaria Mat Deros.

"The Wanita division polls is like a battleground in Palestine," joked a division member.

The rivalry between the two was clearly visible with supporters of both sides trying to upstage each other during the division's Wanita meeting at SMK Bukit Tinggi here yesterday.

Nor Hayati later retained her post.

Meanwhile, at the division's Youth meeting at SMK Datuk Hamzah here, there was confusion over ballot papers.

Many had complained that the papers for division election and that for the national level were "almost similar".

Division head Zainuri Zakaria said the ballot papers had confused many delegates who could not tell the difference between the two.

"I am sure this will result in many spoilt votes," he said.

There was also a small commotion at the Youth election due to the absence of the contestants' name list.

In the end, Zainuri had to write out the names on a white board as a guide for the delegates.

The Puteri election at the Crystal Crown Hotel went on without any hiccups.

Restaurateur rams car into thieves who stole his phone


PETALING JAYA: Two snatch thieves picked the wrong victim when the man gave chase in his car and rammed the duo off their motorcycle.

Restaurant owner Kee Ooi Leng, 28, was talking on his mobile phone as he stopped his car at a traffic light in Taman Sri Gombak when two men on a motorcycle pulled up next to him.

As his window was wound down, the pillion rider cooly reached into the car and snatched Kee's phone from his hand and sped off.

"He responded quickly and chased after the duo in his car," said Gombak OCPD ACP Abdul Rahim Abdullah. "They got as far as 100m before they were flung off their bike when Kee rammed into them," he said.

The robbers, aged 20 and 21, tried to flee on foot but were blocked and beaten up by bystanders.

One of the suspects sustained a broken right leg while the other fractured his left ankle. They were later picked up by police officers and sent to the Selayang Hospital.

ACP Abdul Rahim said the suspects had been remanded until Oct 17 and the case was being investigated under Section 395 of the Penal Code for robbery.

Four robbers struck apartment before being shot


KUALA LUMPUR: Hours before the police ambushed and killed four robbers at an apartment in Jalan Ampang Putra here on Friday, the suspects had struck at the home of a retired army man in Bukit Antara-bangsa.

Recalling his family's ordeal at the hands of the Indonesian men, Jamaludin Sukhi, 60, said he was in the living room when the intruders came at around 3.15am.

The foreigners, two of whom were masked, were armed with parang and a screwdriver.

"They threatened to kill me if I did not give them money," said the pensioner, who alleged he was dragged to the bedroom where he saw his wife bound and gagged.

He was then forced to lead them to his daughter's room where they ransacked for valuables.

Jamaludin and his family were locked in the master bedroom before the robbers fled.

"They took our phones, jewellery and money," he told the police.
