KLIA shooting: Police seeking information from suspect’s family, acquaintances – IGP

KUALA LUMPUR,. Police are seeking information from family members and acquaintances of Hafizul Harawi, who fled after opening fire at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Terminal 1 yesterday, to locate his whereabouts, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Razarudin Husain.

“We are collecting information to locate the suspect’s whereabouts as well as identifying the likely location he is going to hide,” he said briefly when contacted by Bernama.

Razarudin said that police have also tightened control at the border including the rat trails to prevent Hafizul, 38, from fleeing to a neighbouring country.

He added that the man’s photographs had also been distributed at all entry points in the north of the Peninsula and to the authorities of a neighbouring country.

In the meantime, Razarudin also denied a claim that Hafizul was in Makkah on the day of the incident after the main witness of the incident confirmed his identity.

In the 1.30 am incident yesterday, a man fired two shots, one of which hit his wife’s bodyguard. The victim is currently being treated at a hospital and is reported to be in stable condition.
