JITRA, MALAYSIA: Police here are baffled after a 33-year-old guard of a rubber estate was hospitalised with a gunshot wound to the forehead yesterday.

Mohd Shukri Shamsuddin was rushed to the Jitra Hospital here before he was transferred to the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital in Alor Star.

It was learnt that Shukri, from Kampung Kelubi Dalam, was making his rounds at the estate near his house before returning home with the gunshot wound at about 10am.

Kubang Pasu police chief Superintendent Sawaludin Hamenudin said police have yet to obtain a clear picture on what actually happened.

Sawaludin declined to comment if Shukri was armed with a gun or any weapon when he was patrolling the rubber estate.

"We don't know what really happened in Shukri's case.

"We have recorded a statement from Shukri but we need to interview more people in order for us to understand how the victim sustained the gunshot wound.

"However, we have seized two sticks of wood, which resemble a self-made gun, from the victim's house."

Meanwhile, the victim's uncle Zainol Saad, 60, said he was shocked when the wife of the victim informed him of the incident.

"Blood was everywhere on Shukri's face. He was still conscious but was visibly weak and did not say anything when he was rushed to the hospital."
