Company owner gunned down while eating

KUALA LUMPUR - It turned out to be a transport company operator's "last supper" when he was shot dead at a restaurant in Taman Kajang Prima.

R. Applasamy, 47, was having his meal at 1.30am on Tuesday when two men on a motorcycle arrived at the place.

The pillion rider, wearing a full-faced helmet, got off the motorcycle, walked up to Applasamy and fired point-blank at the victim.

A restaurant worker said he heard two shots fired. When he came out to check, he saw Applasamy falling off his chair. He died at the scene.

Applasamy's body was sent to Serdang Hospital.

Selangor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said police were investigating if a hired assassin was involved in the shooting.

"We are on the hunt for the two suspects," he said yesterday.

Those with information on the case should call 03-2052 9999.
