SHAH ALAM: The man detained to facilitate investigations into the road rage incident which led to the death of Syed Muhammad Danial Syed Syakir, near Bandar Baru Bangi on Aug 10, will be charged with murder at the Kajang Court, tomorrow.

Selangor deputy police chief Ab Rashid Ab Wahab said the man, in his early 40s, will be charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

In the incident on Aug 10, Syed Danial, 29, died following an altercation with the driver of another car over a minor accident where his car knocked into a couple’s car just after the Sungai Besi toll plaza.

Following the incident, the two drivers got involved in a car chase and a scuffle ensued between them at the Bandar Baru Bangi interchange. Witnesses at the scene broke up the fight and the two drivers returned to their vehicles.

The younger man then had got out of his vehicle with a baseball bat and smashed the other car’s bonnet. The older driver was believed to have suddenly lurched his vehicle forward, hitting the victim.

Syed Danial was pinned between the car and the road divider. He was subsequently rushed to the Nilai Medical Centre but died while receiving treatment.

Subsequently, police detained the couple to assist in the investigation under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

Both were remanded for seven days until Saturday but only the male suspect’s remand was extended until today while the woman was released on police bail.

On Monday, an investigation paper on the case was submitted to the deputy public prosecutor for further action.
