Suspected car thief rams police vehicle


IPOH: A suspected car thief rammed into a police car to avoid arrest near a hotel in Jalan Raja DiHilir here.

The suspect, in his 30s, deliberately crashed the Toyota Camry he was driving into the police car and managed to flee from the scene at about 11.30pm on Tuesday.

Police had earlier received a tip-off on a car theft syndicate and sent a team from the Criminal Investigation Department to check, said Perak police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani.

"We found four luxury cars, including the Toyota Camry, a Toyota Mark X, a Toyota Vellfire and a BMW 3 Series parked outside the hotel.

Wanted: Lee (left) and Ng.

"Minutes later, a man dashed into the Camry, started the car engine and rammed the vehicle into the police car," he told a press con­ference here yesterday.

SDCP Acryl Sani said the police fired several shots at the car in an attempt to stop the suspect from fleeing.

The Camry was found in Jalan Yang Kalsom at about 1am yesterday, he said.

At the hotel, the police also found three women from Johor, aged between 24 and 53, in a room.

"They confessed to following several men to Ipoh in the four cars," he said.

SDCP Acryl Sani said all four vehicles were reported stolen and had fake registration number plates.

"We believe the cars were to be shipped out illegally to neighbouring countries," he said, adding that the syndicate had been active since 2010.

The police are looking for Lee Woon Fong, 32, from Pengkalan Indah here and Ng Chee Kuan, 26, from Taman Ungku Tun Aminah, Skudai Johor, to facilitate investigations.

Baby in terror ride comes out of coma


KUALA TERENGGANU: The baby who was the victim of a terror ride by a mentally unstable teenager has come out of his coma.

Abdul Pirhat Karim said his son, nine-month-old Ashraf Ikhwan, was in stable condition.

"Thankfully, my son is showing positive signs such as being able to respond and cry. He is also able to drink milk, although the doctor says he can only do so via a tube for now," said Abdul Pirhat, 34.

He added that Ashraf had been in a coma for two days and was transferred from the Intensive Care Unit to the children's ward at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah hospital here.

Ashraf was flung out of the family's MPV which had been taken over by the teenager, who crashed the vehicle along the East Coast Highway here on Monday evening.

Abdul Pirhat sustained a fractured right shoulder while his wife Che Mastura Che Awang, 31, suffered a broken rib.

PR1MA for more but only in KL


KUALA LUMPUR: The 1Malaysia Housing Programme (PR1MA) will allow application for its houses to those who already own a house – but only if the buyer is looking for a second one in the city.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim said the decision to expand the eligibility to apply for PR1MA houses to such applicants was ex­­pected to increase the online appli­­cation to one million from the current 250,000 applications.

He told reporters at Parliament lobby yesterday that the application would be opened especially to those who already own a house in their states of origin, but had to work in the capital. Before this, PR1MA was for first-time buyers. – Bernama
