Seremban

Four Indonesian wanted criminals were shot dead yesterday by the police along Jalan Seremban, Kualiti Alam, after a 15-minute car chase in Bukit Nenas. The men, who practised black magic to defend against weapons and the police, are believed to have been involved in 24 armed robberies in Negri Sembilan, Malacca and Selangor.

The suspects were ordered to surrender when police intercepted their Proton Satria car after they had just robbed a house in Sunai Pelek, Sepang. A car chase ensued but ended abruptly when the robbers crashed their stolen car into a divider near the Quality Alan Sdn Bhd office in Bukit Nenas.

The Indonesians then alighted from the car and charged at the policemen with parang and a crowbar. The policemen fired 10 gunshots, killing all of them on the spot.

Police could not find any identification documents on them, but the suspects’ fingerprints have been sent to Interpol for further investigations. The car had false registration number plates and is believed to be stolen in Tampoi, Johor Baru, earlier this year. In the car, police found a laptop, digital camera, three mobile phones, pliers, screwdrivers, knives, some jewellery and two packets of syabu and Ecstasy pills.
