KUALA LUMPUR, July 5 (Bernama) -- A robbery suspect was shot dead by a businessman with a Tan Sri title during a hold-up at a policlinic in Taman Pertama, Cheras last night.

Cheras police chief ACP Mohan Singh Tara Singh said the incident occurred about 9.50 pm when the Tan Sri was waiting to see the doctor and witnessed the robbery by three men.

"One of the suspects shoved the Tan Sri and swung a machete at him causing a cut on his stomach. The Tan Sri retaliated by firing several shots in their direction with his licensed gun.

"The suspects ran off but one of them fell about 30 metres from the clinic and died. We believe there was another suspect waiting outside," he said at the scene.

A machete, four bullet casings and a Nissan Latio car reported stolen at Taman Mahkota, Batu 9, Kajang in July were found, he added.

"We believe one or two them may be injured from the shots and may seek treatment at medical centres or hospitals. We appeal to these medical facilities to immediately report the matter to the police if they come across any suspicious characters who come for treatment," he said.

Meanwhile, G. Nitya, 24, a nurse at the policlinic told reporters she was helping the doctor with a patient when two suspects snatched her gold chain, ring and mobile phone.

"They took just five minutes to grab everything," she said.

She added that there were three staff, a doctor and about seven patients in the waiting room at the time.
