Respected and dear friend Johor police chief Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay had gone on record stating that the 3.15am incident occurred when a team from the state contingent’s Criminal Investigation Department stopped a Perodua Myvi and Toyota Avanza which were being driven in a suspicious manner.
He said the team tried to approach them for inspection, but two suspects in the Toyota Avanza suddenly acted aggressively and fired a few shots at the police.
That at the same time, two suspects in the Perodua Myvi car tried to escape before a scuffle ensued.
That the suspects also attacked the police with a machete and a dagger, injuring an officer.
It was right and justified that out of self-defence, the police then fired back at the suspects!
The suspects were believed to be foreigners; aged between 23 and 40 did not possess any personal identification document.
He said in the incident, the police also discovered a black revolver with six bullet shells, four bullets, two machetes, a dagger as well as several tools believed to be used for robbery and burglary.
Also seized were two vehicles which had been reported missing.
The Police Chief had stated that this case was being investigated under Section 307/186 of the Penal Code.
