KLIA shooting: Bodyguard's wife in shock, says 'didn't expect this in Syawal'

KUALA LUMPUR: The wife of the personal bodyguard who was shot at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Terminal 1 earlier this morning said she was shocked to learn of the news.

"I am shocked and didn't expect something like this to happen in the month of Syawal," she said, who only wishes to be identified as Siti Noraida, 28.

She said that immediately after being informed about the incident around 2am, she rushed to Cyberjaya Hospital to see her husband who was undergoing treatment.

"The hospital informed me that my husband's condition is critical and he needs to be put into a medically induced coma. I was also told that there was severe bleeding, and when I arrived at the hospital, he was having difficulty breathing, but no vital organs were affected by the gunshot," she told Bernama.

The full-time housewife added that her husband was working as a personal bodyguard on a part-time basis before Ramadan.

Earlier, Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan confirmed a shooting incident at the KLIA Terminal 1 arrival hall early this morning involving a male suspect who has now been identified as Hafizul Harawi, 38, believed to have fled northwards.

He said that the shooting incident was personally motivated and is not linked to any terrorist activities or groups.
