Indian origin man shot dead in Malaysia

Singapore, April 26 (IANS) A 39-year-old Indian origin man was shot dead by motorcycle-borne assailants in the Malaysian town of Seremban while he was driving on a busy road.

N. Ragunathan was driving to the road transport department (RTD) headquarters of the Malaysian state of Negeri Sembilan in Seremban Thursday when two men on a motorcycle pulled up alongside him, The New Straits Times reported.

When Ragunathan stopped at the entrance of the RTD office, the pillion-rider got down from the motorcycle and fired thrice at Ragunathan, who collapsed on the spot.

“The shots hit his head and body,” the report quoted state criminal investigation department chief assistant commissioner Hamdan Majid as saying.

“We believe that they are locals based on their facial features as described by witnesses.”

Ragunathan’s body was later taken to a hospital.

Majid said the police are investigating the motive behind the murder.
