THE assault on Penang executive councillor Jagdeep Singh Deo at the parking lot of a restaurant in Tanjung Bungah last Friday night was neither revenge nor politically motivated, state police chief Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said.
He said initial investigations revealed that the incident occurred following a misunderstanding between the suspect and the DAP lawmaker.
“So far, police investigations found that the incident was neither politically motivated nor revenge-driven as the 60-year-old suspect, a foreign national, did not even know who the victim is.
“They were believed to have had a misunderstanding and the incident happened too fast,” he told a press conference in George Town today.
Yesterday, it was reported police had detained and remanded the suspect to facilitate investigations into the incident, which had caused the state housing and local government committee chairman to sustain an ankle injury.
Shuhaily said the investigation paper had been submitted to the deputy public prosecutor for further action.
In another development, Shuhaily said police were on a hunt for four other men believed to be members of an organised crime group known as Chandra Gang, which had been active in drug trafficking.
He said the four men comprised two locals, K. Harivin Raj, 25, and B. Jagandran, 47; while the two others were foreigners known only as Juanda and Afrizal.
“A total of 14 members had been detained through Op Cantas Tanjung 3 on May 25, and had been charged in court under the Security Offences and Special Measures Act 2012,” he said.
Police believe the gang has been involved in drug smuggling and possession of firearms, and has been active since last year. – Bernama, June 20, 2022.
