SHAH ALAM, Dec 17 — A suspected drug pusher fell to his death from the fourth floor of a flat in Section 27 here yesterday while trying to escape a police raid.
According to Shah Alam police chief Supt Zahedi Ayob, the police team had to break open the door of a unit after knocking and failing to get any response from the occupants in the 4.30pm operation carried out at Block 39 in Taman Bunga Negara.
“The police team found four men in the hall and two were hiding in a room of the unit.
“On further checking, police found a packet of syabu weighing 0.5g valued at RM50 with one of the men,” Zahedi told a news conference here today.
He said on further questioning, the suspects told the police that two of their colleagues had escaped through the rear portion of the unit.
Police later found a man lying motionless and covered with blood on the back lane behind the flat.
Zahedi said the victim was one of the two men who tried to escape the police raid earlier. The other man managed to flee.
He said police found that the 29-year-old dead suspect had two previous records for theft and drug abuse.
The body was sent to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang Three of the six men rounded up, aged 19 to 27, were tested positive for drugs and were detained, while the other three were released. — Bernama
