MyWatch chief moved for surgery


CRITICAL: Sanjeevan to undergo operation to remove bullet

 SEREMBAN: ANTI-crime watchdog head R. Sri Sanjeevan was transferred to Serdang Hospital yesterday to have the bullet lodged in his rib area removed.

The 29-year-old MyWatch chairman was transferred at 3.30pm to the hospital from the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital here, where he had been warded since a failed attempt on his life in Bahau on Saturday night.

MyWatch adviser, S. Gobi Krishnan, said the transfer was done as cardiologists at Serdang Hospital were more experienced.

He said Sanjeevan's condition had deteriorated as he had developed a high temperature.

"We are hoping his condition will improve and surgery to remove the bullet will be conducted soon."

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar urged the public not to speculate on the shooting and let police do their work.

He said it was unfair for people to say police were involved in the shooting.

"The task to probe the incident was given to a team headed by the federal the Criminal Investigation Department chief.

"Doesn't that show police are concerned about the case?"

Khalid said this at federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman after distributing kuih Raya packs at the Perkep multipurpose hall.

On a tweet by Pandan member of parliament Rafizi Ramli on Saturday that Sri Sanjeevan had wanted his help to expose "cops with links to drug syndicates", he said he did not know whether the PKR leader would be called in to have his statement recorded in the course of the investigation into the shooting.

He said this was something the investigating team would have to decide.

"The problem is that people claim to know a lot of things, but do not relay them to the police. You have to come forward, then we can uncover the truth."
