Murder suspect may be a foreigner

SUBANG JAYA - The security guard who shot dead a bank officer is believed to be a foreigner.

Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar confirmed that the suspect was using a fake MyKad.

"Initial investigations revealed that the suspect maybe an Indo-nesian," he said when contacted yesterday.

He added two men and a woman, believed to be the suspect's friends, had been detained to facilitate investigations.

DCP Abdul Rahim refuted speculation that the suspect had been caught.

"We believe he is still in Selangor," he said.

He added hours after the gruesome robbery-cum-murder, rumours were circulated by SMS claiming that the man was captured while he was trying to board a plane at an airport here.

"It is not true... people should refrain from spreading false information," he said.

He added police would also investigate the security company for hiring a security guard with a fake MyKad.

Subang Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Tan Ah Chua said a special task force had been formed following the robbery on Wednesday.

He added that the information on the fake My Kad IC showed the name was Ardi Hamza (770818-12-6721) from Tawau in Sabah.

"Bank officials have yet to inform the police how much money was taken from the vault," he said.

Meanwhile, the bank where the crime happened has been closed until next Monday for investigations.

In addition, a CCTV video of the shooting has been uploaded on the Internet, showing the last moments of bank officer Norazita Abu Talib (pic) before she was shot.

The 33-second video showed an office room and an open door where Norazita, in red, was standing with a female colleague wearing white.

As Norazita turned, she suddenly collapsed and her colleague was seen covering her face and ears.

It is estimated the Norazita was shot from a distance of about 5m away.

The assailant then ran towards the safe from behind the camera and dragged Norazita's frantic colleague out of the room.

He then walked over Norazita's motionless body and coldly proceeded to take the money from the safe and put it into a bag.

Ambank Group corporate communication head Syed Anuar Syed Ali said the company denied any of its staff uploaded the footage.
