MyWatch chairman accuses cops of not probing attempt to assassinate him

PETALING JAYA - MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan is accusing the police of not investigating the attempt to assassinate him, but instead, are looking at non-related matters such as his tweets.

The crime watchdog leader said this after he was questioned at the Tropicana police station here yesterday by some senior police officers in relation to four police reports lodged against him.

"But not once did they ask me about my shooting," said Sanjeevan, who was accompanied by his lawyer, Latheefa Koya.

According to Latheefa, the one police report lodged against Sanjeevan was regarding a tweet he wrote on Sept 30, alleging that the calibre of the assassin's bullet removed from his rib cage was 0.38, which he said was among those used by the Malaysian police.

"They asked him if he was aware that his tweet had tarnished the good image of the police," said Latheefa, who added that the other three reports concerned claims by alleged extortion victims who said that they had been approached by "two Indian men" who demanded protection money from them.

"The police did not show us the report and did not provide us any details on why they suspected one of the men to be Sanjeevan," Latheefa said.

The first report was lodged on Aug 17 by a shop owner in Triang, Pahang, and the rest at Bahau, Negri Sembilan, by business owners on Sept 26.

"Its been two months and still nothing on my shooting.
