Security guard took RM450,000 after killing officer

SHAH ALAM - The security guard who shot dead a bank officer had escaped with about RM450,000.

Selangor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said police, however, managed to recover about RM20,000 after arresting three of the suspect's family members, including a woman.

The arrests took place during a raid on a shop in Subang Jaya on Wednesday.

"Two of those arrested worked as security guards and they, like the main suspect, were also using fake MyKad," he said.

"All of those arrested were foreigners, believed to be Indonesians," he said, adding that all three did not have proper documents.

He told a press conference that the main suspect, along with the two other security guards arrested, had been working in Malaysia for about two years.

SDCP Mohd Shukri said police had intensified the search for the main suspect, believed to be still in the state.

"We will boost security at all entry points to prevent his escape," he said.

SDCP Mohd Shukri also warned anyone against uploading photos or footage of the murder of bank officer Norazita Abu Talib in Wednesday's incident.

"Police personnel and members of the public are strictly prohibited from doing this. We will not tolerate such acts as it is a blatant disrespect of the victim's family," he added.

He said anyone who did this, while investigation was going on, was committing an offence under Section 233 of Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Norazita's husband Irwan Kamaruddin, 37, has also pleaded with the public to stop sharing photos and a video of the shooting.

"My grieving children will be emotional, seeing pictures of their mother in such a condition," he said. "Spreading such footage is disrespectful to my late wife and our family."

The bank where the crime happened has been closed until Monday for investigations.
