No foul play in death of cop shot in the head


KOTA BHARU: The police do not suspect foul play in the death of a police inspector who sustained a gunshot wound in the forehead at his office in the Pasir Puteh police headquarters yesterday.

Kelantan CID chief ACP Mohamad Fakri Che Sulaiman said the case was classified as sudden death due to an accident involving a gun.

“However, the police will investigate from all aspects on how the incident had occurred,” he said when contacted here tonight.

At about 9am yesterday, a policeman found the body of the 29-year-old inspector after he was instructed to look for him as the inspector had not shown up at the district police headquarters administration meeting to represent the Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief.

The victim, from Selangor, was found slumped in his office with blood under his chair. He was pronounced dead by a doctor from the Tengku Anis Hospital in Pasir Puteh at about 9.40am.

He had been transferred to the district police headquarters in February.
