A suspicious package that was placed on a car bonnet exploded and killed a Malaysian waiter last week, according to Kosmo.
The emergency call came in at around 8:55 p.m., as per Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Farouk Eshal, the chief of the Ampang Jaya District Police.
He noted that he man allegedly tried to move the parcel from his car’s bonnet after seeing it had been left there when he was approaching the eatery he worked at.
“A package that had been put on the bonnet of a Toyota Corolla Altis was discovered by the victim, a local man, not far from the restaurant where he was employed. An explosion was thought to have occurred when the victim held the suspicious package in his hands,” he stated.
The 28-year-old individual was subsequently taken to Ampang Hospital after sustaining severe injuries to his hands and body.
The victim, nevertheless, was unable to be saved, and pronounced dead on December 29 at 9:45 p.m.
The inquiry also revealed that the explosion was primarily responsible for a dent on the victim’s car. NST reported that police also uncovered materials such as batteries, power banks, and fragments of paper cutters at the scene, leading them to believe that the explosive was a homemade bomb.
The occurrence is still being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code. The case has been classified as murder.
