Two security guards charged with throwing petrol bombs at a Kuala Lumpur nightclub

KUALA LUMPUR: Two security guards were charged at the Sessions Court here on Thursday (May 16) for throwing petrol bombs at the front door of an entertainment center in the capital last week.

M. Preemraj and Nor Rahman Sadik, both 25, pleaded not guilty when the charges were read out before Judge Hamidah Mohamed Deril.

According to the charges, the two were accused of abetting the suspect, who is still at large, in committing the crime, which resulted in a loss of RM3,000. The crime was allegedly committed at 2.17am on Jalan Yap Kwan Seng here on May 9.

The two accused were charged under Section 109 of the Penal Code read in conjunction with Section 435 of the Penal Code, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years and is also punishable by a fine if convicted.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Muhammad Muhairi Mohamed Noh offered each defendant bail of RM15,000 against one surety, with the additional condition of reporting to the nearest police station once a month until the case is completed.

Lawyer MV Yoges, representing the two accused, sought lower bail on the grounds that Preemraj suffered from seizures and had difficulty walking due to an accident last year, while Nor Rahman’s wife is currently in custody.

The court granted the two defendants bail of RM5,000 each against bail and an additional condition requested by the prosecution and set June 21 for mention. -Bernama
