Yesterday evening (Monday, 4th September), an entertainment outlet in Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, was hit by explosives.
The night club in question, known as DK, was hit by 2 Molotov cocktails around 4:10pm. As a result, a Bangladeshi worker named Sujan, who is in his 30s, was injured as he was near the front entrance during the occurrence.
“The incident occurred at the foyer of the club, which is located on the first floor of the Encorp Garden office. The incident happened at 4.10pm when the workers were setting up the place for their nightly operation. 2 suspects, which we believe are Chinese, are involved in the case, They hurled 2 molotov cocktails but only one went off, injuring the worker on his arm and forehead,” said Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Mohd Zani Che Din.
“It is believed that the suspects used a black Audi to flee the scene. We managed to get the registration number from the rear of the car,” Zani revealed. The police has since ruled out terrorism as a motive. “We are looking at the case from all angles, including extortion. It is believed that the owner of the premise was extorted for protection money before. This case is not related to any Islamist State (IS) activities,” Zani added.
Sujan is currently receiving treatment at the Sungai Buloh hospital after suffering burns about 20% of his body.
The case is currently being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.
