Johor Baru

Tenggaroh state assemblyman Datuk S. Krishnasamy was shot dead at point blank range in a lift at the state MIC headquarters along Jalan Segget yesterday at 2:30pm.

The gunman had followed Krishnasamy who had arrived at the headquarters for a committee meeting into a lift. The MIC deputy head was shot once below the left eyebrow with the bullet leaving from the back of the head. No weapon was found at the scene.

It is believed that the killing could have been motivated by political, business, money lending or gangsterism causes. Police said that a man in his 30s and wearing a black shirt and jeans, was seen running away from the headquarters with a package and a helmet. He then escaped on a red motorcycle.

The man has been described as medium-built, 152cm tall and possibly Indian. Police believe that he may have fled towards Johor Baru.
