Pengasas Arab Malaysian Bank Hussain Ahmad Najadi(atas) maut manakala isterinya cedera parah ditembak dari jarak dekat di parkir kereta selepas keluar dari sebuah tokong Cina, Kuan Yin Temple, di Lorong Ceylon, di ibu negara hari ini.
Timbalan Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) Kuala Lumpur ACP Khairi Ahrasa berkata kejadian berlaku pada 2 petang ketika mangsa datang ke tokong itu berjumpa dengan seorang rakannya untuk berbincang mengenai urusan jual beli saham.
"Selang beberapa minit kemudian, mangsa didatangi seorang suspek lelaki dari arah belakang melepaskan tembakan rambang kepada kedua-dua mangsa yang ketika itu menuju ke parkir kereta.
"Hussain,75, terkena dua das tembakan di bahagian dada dan di sebelah rusuk kiri manakala isterinya, 49, terkena dua das tembakan di pergelangan tangan kiri serta di paha kanan," katanya ketika dihubungi Bernama.
Beliau berkata mangsa disahkan mati di tempat kejadian dan dihantar ke Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) untuk dibedah siasat manakala isterinya dihantar ke Hospital Tung Shin di ibu negara untuk rawatan.
Khairi berkata siasatan awal mendapati tiga suspek lelaki berumur lingkungan 35 hingga 40 tahun telah menunggu mangsa di luar tokong semasa mangsa sedang berbincang.
"Suspek meloloskan diri menggunakan teksi. Punca sebenar belum diketahui tetapi dipercayai mempunyai kaitan dengan perniagaan," katanya.
Sementara itu, seorang saksi yang mahu dikenali sebagai Lim, 50, berkata suspek didatangi seorang lelaki dari arah belakang sebaik keluar dari tokong itu.
"Tiba-tiba saya terdengar bunyi tembakan lebih dari lima das dilepaskan. Suspek kemudian melarikan diri ke bahagian tepi tokong dengan sebuah teksi," katanya ketika ditemui pemberita di tempat kejadian.
Lee mendakwa suspek dilihat memakai pakaian sukan, bercermin mata serta bertopi.-malaysiakini
Arab-Malaysian Bank founder gunned down...
Arab-Malaysian Bank founder Hussain Ahmad Najadi was gunned down in Kuala Lumpur today, police said.
The attack took place in a car park near the Kuan Yin Temple on Lorong Ceylon at 2pm. Hussain was with his wife at the time.
Kuala Lumpur deputy CID chief Khairi Ahrasa told Bernama the couple was attacked from behind by two assailants.
Hussain, 75, was shot twice on the torso while his wife, 49, was shot on the arm and leg. Hussain succumbed to his injuries while his seriously injured wife has been warded.
Khairi said preliminary investigations suggested that three men aged between 35 and 40 years were waiting for Hussain outside the temple.
Hussain was said to have met a friend at the temple to discuss business matters.
"The suspects escaped in a taxi. The motive is yet to be established but it is believed to be related to business," Khairi said.
A witness told the national news agency that he heard more than five shots being fired.
Hussain is an Iranian with permanent residency status.
Son expressed shock
Meanwhile, his son Pascal Najadi has expressed shock over the murder of his father.
"I was shocked upon hearing about the killing in Kuala Lumpur, which was carried out in broad daylight," he told Bernama in a telephone interview from Europe.
Pascal, who holds dual Swiss and British citizenship, urged the Malaysian authorities to do their utmost to apprehend the culprits involved in the killing of his father and bring them to justice.
Pascal, 45, who is also a banker, said the irony was that his father was murdered in Malaysia, a country for which he had so much affection, having called it home for more than four decades.
He said he came to know about the killing, a few hours after it took place and that he was also informed by the Malaysian police.
Hussain founded Arab Malaysian Banking Group in 1975 before it changed hands in 1982, to what is known as Arab Malaysian Bank or Ambank.
