Wong telah menfitnah dan menjatuhkan reputasi serta kredibiliti Sri Sanjeevan dan MyWatch.

BAHAU: Pengerusi Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force (MyWatch), R Sri Sanjeevan, 29, bakal memfailkan saman fitnah ke atas seorang individu bernama Wong Nyuk Sang.

Sri Sanjeevan mendakwa Wong telah menfitnah beliau dan menjatuhkan reputasi serta kredibiliti Sri Sanjeevan dan MyWatch.

“Dakwaan Wong dalam sebuah akhbar berbahasa Cina baru-baru ini adalah tidak benar dan menfitnah saya

Sebelum ini pengawal peribadi Sri Sanjeevan iaitu S Ayappen telah membuat satu laporan polis di Balai Polis Bahau pada 28 Februari lalu berhubung insiden kereta yang dipandu oleh Ayappen nyaris dilanggar oleh sebuah kereta Perodua Kancil.

“Pada 28 Februari lalu  lebih kurang jam 5.30 petang, semasa pengawal peribadi saya sedang memandu di Taman Sornam, Bahau, sebuah kereta jenis Perodua Kancil dinaiki dua lelaki Cina telah cuba melanggar kereta dipandu pengawal peribadi saya dan telah menunjukkan isyarat lucah kepada beliau dan mengejar hingga ke Kiara Square.

“Selepas menurunkan saya di Nanyang Kopitiam, pengawal peribadi saya pergi semula ke Taman Sornam dan kereta tersebut masih mengekori pengawal peribadi saya. Pengawal peribadi saya berpatah balik ke Taman Meranti dan didapati kereta tersebut telah tiada,” jelas Sri Sanjeevan.

THIS LATEST INCIDENT HAS TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY THE POLICE BUT…?

Sanjeevan, who was MyWatch chairperson said he tried to call the Bahau police station, and the police operations room and the District Police chief several times to alert them over the incident.

However, there was no response

Mystery car tried to ram into mine, claims MyWatch’s Sanjeevan

PETALING JAYA: MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan claims that two men tried to attack him in Bahau, Negri Sembilan.

Sanjeevan said the incident occurred at around 6pm Friday in Taman Sornam Bahau when his car was followed by a Perodua Kancil.

“At first, my driver noticed there was a car with two men inside following us. My driver drove around trying to make turns to lose them,” he said when contacted.

Sanjeevan said he managed to get out of the car and run into a coffee shop.

“My driver continued driving when the Kancil drove up to the side of the car and one of them showed him the middle finger. He also started screaming at my driver,” said Sanjeevan.

Sanjeevan added that the driver of the Kancil also tried to ram into his car before speeding off.

IT STARTS ALL OVER AGAIN!
Sanjeevan gets another death threat!

Yesterday, Sanjeevan received a text message in Tamil with the sender threatening to kill him. He later lodged a police report at the Jempol police district headquarters in Negri Sembilan.

Last year when he received a death threat, the police never investigated it and later he got shot.

“Now I’m getting another death threat and if I get shot again they (police) may just try to wash their hands off,” he said.

New threat, so Sanjeevan wants protection

Anti-crime activist R Sri Sanjeevan, who was shot at last July, is asking for police protection after receiving a fresh death threat.

Sanjeevan, accompanied by Batu MP Tian Chua, submitted a memorandum for Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar (left) at the Bukit Aman police headquarters this morning.

“I want the police to give us protection, including for my family,” he told Malaysiakini when contacted.

He said he believed the death threat this time, like the last, was in relation to his threats to expose cops involved in drugs and illegal gambling syndicates.

Sanjeevan quizzed over ‘police bullet’ tweet

MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan gave his statement to the police today on his controversial tweet on Sept 30 alleging the possibility that police were involved in his shooting last July.

Sanjeevan, who appeared in a wheelchair, gave his statement at the Tropicana police station in Petaling Jaya for about 35 minutes today.

He had tweeted that the bullet doctors retrieved from his body is said to be from a .38 Smith & Wesson, the type of gun commonly used by the police.

Despite police investigating the tweet, Sanjeevan and his family are upset that police are not investigating the drive-by shooting incident in Bahau, in which he almost lost his life.

… he tweeted “Bullet they took from my ribcage belongs 2 Smith&Wesson .38 model gun. “Coincidentally” its PDRMsia old gun they used.”

The report on the tweet was lodged by a police officer from Ampang.

Lawyer Latheefa Koya, who accompanied Sanjeevan when his statement was recorded today, told reporters that this constituted police harassment of Sanjeevan.

MyWatch chairman Sanjeevan scarred by shooting

PETALING JAYA: R. Sri Sanjeevan is a pale shadow of his former self. He has lost 15kg, shaved his head and wears a brace on his chest, hiding horrific surgical scars – no thanks to his close brush with death when a motorcycle pillion rider fired a shot at him in Bahau in July.

And he’s also a beaten man.

According to the crime watchdog leader, he has been beaten up and threatened many times, but the shooting was the last straw.

Demoralised: Sanjeevan showing his scars during the interview and (inset) how he looked before the shooting.

The MyWatch chairman is leaving his advocacy days behind, saying that continuing his work was “not worth another bullet or his family’s safety”.

Musa said MCCC would focus on working together with the police, security companies, neighbourhood watch volunteers and citizens to help reduce the crime rate.

“We are an independent body and apolitical. We take our work seriously and aim to reduce the crime rate,” he said.

Ex-IGP: MyWatch poorly managed

G Lavendran | September 19, 2013

Anti-crime watchdog MyWatch never worked together with other members, said former IGP Musa Hasan.

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Inspector-general of Police Musa Hassan said anti-crime watchdog MyWatch never had meetings to discuss action plans among members.

The former MyWatch adviser said the management of MyWatch was poor and its chairman, R Sri Sanjeevan, did not call for meetings with members.

“What is the point of an NGO if you don’t work with the people who are supporting your cause?

“When I was there, we have never had a single meeting to discuss action plans,” he told reporters after the second meeting for the recently formed anti-crime NGO, Malaysia Community Crime Care (MCCC).

Musa, who is MCCC president, said he was no longer with MyWatch, but did not rule out working together with them in the future.

“We have no plans to work with them but if Sanjeevan wants, we will work together for the benefit of the community,” he said.

‘Sanjeevan does not know what he’s tweeting’

Anti-crime watchdog MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan’s tweets sent out recently are not reliable as Sanjeevan does not know what he is tweeting about, his father told Malaysiakini today.

P Ramakrishnan said that Sanjeevan “does not know what he’s doing”, even though he could now recognise the whole family and is back at the family home in Negri Sembilan, resting.

NONE“His memory, almost all of it, has returned. What happened recently, he remembers it all. But he still hasn’t fully recovered,” Ramakrishnan (right) said.

He expressed his worry over Sanjeevan’s tweets and behaviour over the past couple of days.

Sanjeevan, who tweets using the Twitter handle @SanjeevanSS, has tweeted that some people were trying to “silence” him.

He has also claimed that masked people were coming to his house, and that the police have refused to provide him and his family with protection.

Sanjeevan: Police out to frame me

P Ramani | September 10, 2013

My informers are being coerced to give false statements against me, claims MyWatch chief who’s recuperating from a life-saving operation.

PETALING JAYA: MyWatch chief R Sri Sanjeevan today said police have arrested many of his informers and are coercing them to give false statements linking him to the underworld.

He named Bukit Aman, IPK Negeri Sembilan and IPD Jempol as those going all out to frame him.

According to Sanjeevan, who is recuperating from a life-saving operation following an assassination attempt on his life, said all his informants are known to Federal Narcotics director Norashid Ibrahim.

“I am very upset at the way the police are handling the situation as some of my informants have been arrested and charged for drug related and gangsterism offences,” claimed Sanjeevan.

He said that before the attempt on his life on July 2, he had revealed the names of rogue cops in Negeri Sembilan, some of whom he alleged received as much RM30,000 in bribes from drug syndicates.

“Why haven’t these police officers I named been investigated or arrested as I have given all the details to IGP Khalid Abu Bakar,” asked Sanjeevan.

“It appears that Khalid is only paying a lip-service and covering up for his men in blue,” added Sanjeevan.

‘Drug gangs behind Sanjeevan’s shooting’

MyWatch advisor believes drug related gangs behind the assassination attempt

a

PETALING JAYA: MyWatch advisor S Gobi Krishnan today revealed that R Sanjeevan’s shooting incident was related to drug gangs.

There is credible information to suggest this, according to him.

Gobi said he managed to rule out the possibility of the theories through investigations carried out with the assistance of his informers.

Nevertheless he is still unclear which particular groups are involved in the shooting.

MyWatch chairman Sanjeevan fully conscious, suffering from memory loss

Latest Update: August 30, 2013 11:22 am

MyWatch chairman R.Sri Sanjeevan seems to have lost his memory despite regaining full consciousness.

The Star quoted Sanjeevan’s father P.Ramakrishnan as saying his son had no memory of the murder attempt on his life nor could he recognise anyone, including himself.

“There are so many things he can’t remember but we are slowly refreshing his memory, one by one,” Ramakrishnan said.

According to The Star, Ramakrishnan said Sanjeevan had asked him who he was and why he was there.

“You are Sanjeevan. You are my son and you had an accident,” Ramakrishnan told his son.

He added that this was an additional blow for the family after all the stress they had gone through since the incident on July 27.

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/mywatch-chairman-suffers-memory-loss

Now deemed to be out of danger, however, Sanjeevan currently cannot “remember many things” according to his father.

NS police return to check on Sanjeevan, says father

Negri Sembilan police officers have returned to check on the status of MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan’s recovery, even though the latter’s father had insisted the state’s police stop investigating the attempt on Sanjeevan’s life last month.

P Ramakrishnan told Malaysiakini today that he saw the officers a couple of days ago at the Serdang Hospital where Sanjeevan is warded, and claimed they have been making enquiries about Sanjeevan’s condition.

“They have been interviewing the doctors,” Ramakrishnan said.

He said that he is “very unhappy” about the state police’s meddling into Sanjeevan’s case again after he openly claimed that the Negri Sembilan police might have had a hand in the attempt on Sanjeevan’s (right) life.

“I have informed about their (Negri Sembilan police) presence to MyWatch advisor S Gobikrishnan and have asked him to communicate this matter to the police again,” he said.

The officers, Ramakrishnan further claimed, were the very same ones who had came to collect the bullet removed from Sanjeevan’s rib cage last week following surgery.

A lung infection is currently hindering the recovery of MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan, who is still unconscious in the Serdang Hospital.

His father P Ramakrishnan told Malaysiakini that doctors are waiting for Sanjeevan to recover from the lung infection before they can perform surgery to remove a bullet lodged in his rib-cage.

“The lung infection has to go first,” he said.

However, Ramakrishnan said that doctors have claimed that the operation to remove the bullet is not so critical at this point in time.

“The bullet is still there, but the doctors have said that the bullet is not affecting any part of his body. So they want him to recover from the lung infection first,” he added.

He added that Sanjeevan (left) is still unconscious due to the drugs he was given, however, he is expected to recover “very soon”.

“(The drugs are) to make him sleep and rest. He has lost a lot of blood; his lungs and liver were affected by the gunshot,” he said.

Removing bullet not priority for now: Subramaniam (updated)

PUTRAJAYA (Aug 1, 2013): Removing the bullet from the abdomen of Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force’s (MyWatch) R Sri Sanjeevan (pix) is not as critical as stabilising his condition from other complications as these are “more life-threatening”, Health Minister Datuk Seri S Subramaniam said.

“The bullet is not in a life-threatening position for him now.

“It is the other condition of his body that are life threatening for him at the moment,” he told theSun today, responding to the most asked question on why the delay in performing the surgery to remove the bullet from the crime watchdog chairman’s rib cage.

Subramaniam stressed that although the bullet is still in his rib cage, it is not causing harm to his body.

“It is sitting there without causing any damage. That is why the surgery can be done at a later stage.

“But what is more important now is that the doctors are trying to see his lung condition, his blood pressure and so on before proceeding with the surgery,” he said.

Sanjeevan’s statements may have led to his shooting

R. Sri Sanjeevan

PETALING JAYA (July 31, 2013): Statements made by crime watch activist R. Sri Sanjeevan against organised crime may have led to his shooting.

Patron of non-governmental organisation (NGO) Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force (MyWatch) and former inspector-general of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said that Sanjeevan had been vocal in exposing crime syndicates linked to the police.

“Maybe one of these underground gangs was disgruntled by his statement and sent out a hit on him,” Musa told theSun in a phone interview to
day.

However, he said he does not know if the police were linked to the shooting incident.

MyWatch recently gave details on the alleged involvement of Malacca and Negri Sembilan police officers in drug syndicates and later said that the police did not take action on the matter.

Sanjeevan’s statements may have led to his shooting

Gobikrishnan had claimed in his Twitter account on July 28 that the underworld “did it under the instruction of the enforcers”. He however did not elaborate what he was referring to.

He had also questioned the police’s wisdom in arresting Sanjeevan’s friend Ramesh Balakrishnan allegedly on a drug-related offence shortly after the shooting.

Describing the session as a “waste of time”, Gobikrishnan told Malaysiakini that the police were mostly interested in the tweets, which were critical of police investigations about the shooting, but not the shooting itself.

“There was only one or two questions about Sanjeevan. The rest were about my tweets regarding the police,” he said.

“They wanted to know why I tweeted to criticise the police, and what made me say the things I said.”

The police took 90 minutes to record his statements at the Batu Caves police station.

“I think they should spend more time trying to find Sanjeevan’s shooter and get to the bottom of this as soon as possible,” he said.

Why delay in removing bullet, asks MyWatch

B Nantha Kumar | July 30, 2013

MyWatch advisor and co-founder questions the Health Ministry for the lack of urgency in treating Sanjeevan.

PETALING JAYA: The advisor and co-founder of anti-crime watchdog MyWatch S Gobi Krishnan today urged the Health Ministry to explain the delay in having a bullet removed from the rib cage of the NGO’s chairman R Sri Sanjeevan who was shot on Saturday.

“Yesterday, I visited him at Tuanku Jaafar Hospital (HTJ), Seremban and I was shocked when Sanjeevan’s father told me that the doctors have yet to remove the bullet,” he told FMT.

“When I checked with the doctor, he said the hospital is planning to transfer Sanjeevan to the Serdang hospital because HTJ does not have a doctor who could perform the operation,” he added.

“When asked why they are still keeping him at HTJ since no doctor could perform the operation, the doctor told me that the hospital is short of ambulance and thus unable to transfer Sanjeevan to the Serdang hospital.

“The doctor also informed that the hospital management will not allow private ambulance to ferry him,” said Gobi.

He added that he was riled by the reply and decided to meet the hospital director.

While at the director’s office, Gobi claimed that he saw on the table a letter of approval signed by the director to transfer Sanjeevan from HTJ to Serdang Hospital.

“When I asked about the letter, they immediately said they will transfer Sanjeevan to the Serdang hospital,” he said.

He added that he was surprised that the hospital was able to, without delay, arrange everything including an ambulance to transfer Sanjeevan to the Serdang hospital.

Gobi also said that he was informed in Serdang Hospital that they were waiting for a specialist from Selayang Hospital to perform the surgery.

“Now, the question is why did HTJ (Seremban) transfer him to Serdang Hospital when there is no doctor who could perform the operation when he should be placed in Selayang Hospital?” he asked.

“Why wasn’t he transferred straight to Selayang Hospital or to the Putrajaya Hospital which is a government specialist hospital?” he asked.

PETALING JAYA: It was only a matter of time before an assassination attempt was carried out on anti-crime activist R. Sri Sanjeevan, said MyWatch advisor S. Gobi Krishnan.

According to him, this was because Sanjeevan, who is also MyWatch chief, had alleged police involvement with the criminal underworld.

On July 24, Sanjeevan had tweeted from his @SanjeevanSS account: “Seriously thinking to expose on a top leader of @PDRMsia where his son is under payroll of kingpins and some syndicates. Interesting piece!”.

“After he tweeted that, I called him immediately to ask why he revealed our next course of action. Sometimes, you must do things quietly until you have everything lined up and ready to expose, though the temptation is there to reveal it beforehand,” said Gobi when contacted by The Star Online.

‘Sanjeevan was to have released leaked police memo’

The contents of a ‘leaked police memo’ purportedly shedding light on personnel linked to drug syndicates was to have been released this week by anti-crime activist R Sri Sanjeevan.

However, he was shot and injured on Saturday in Bahau, Negri Sembilan.

NONEPKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli (left) said: “Sanjeevan said he had obtained an internal police memo which lists the (names of) police personnel being investigated (allegedly) for being involved in drug syndicates.”

Elaborating on his 20-minute meeting with the MyWatch chairperson last Friday, Rafizi said Sanjeevan had confided that the offences are very serious in that these carry the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

“He said these involved a huge quantity of drugs and extensive trafficking … based on the seriousness of this, I agreed to meet him this week,” Rafizi told a press conference at the PKR headquarters.

“He also mentioned that it was an internal memo marked ‘sulit’ (confidential).”

However, he said Sanjeevan did not disclose the names of the personnel involved, describing it as “fortunate” that he had not done so.

Anwar blasts Zahid for jumping the gun

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has cautioned Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi against protecting rogue policemen.

Responding to the shooting of whistleblower R Sri Sanjeevan, he criticised the minister over his knee-jerk dismissal of speculation that policemen were behind the murder attempt.

“My advise to Zahid is to allow the police to conduct a thorough investigation first. You can’t assume, without the facts of investigation… this is the problem with Umno leaders,” Anwar said.

“As a good minister, you have to defend your staff first… I think in that spirit, I would accept (Zahid’s stand). But he should not use that reason to protect the rogues,” he added.

Cops not behind Sanjeevan shooting: Has probe been completed, why is Zahid denying?

Police were not involved in the shooting of MyWatch chairman R. Sri Sanjeevan, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He denied rumours that police were behind Sanjeevan’s shooting, saying he would ensure investigations were accelerated and those responsible arrested.

Ahmad Zahid said this to reporters after breaking fast at the Sungai Buloh prison.

Prior to the incident, Sanjeevan had tweeted: “A @PDRMsia cop told some syndicate fellow that he’ll get them firearms & told them to fire few shots at my house to scare me/family!”

‘Sanjeevan wanted to reveal cops linked to drugs’
5:33PM Jul 28, 2013

Anti-crime activist R Sri Sanjeevan was attempting to reveal the names of cops that were allegedly linked to drug syndicates before he was shot, said PKR strategies director Rafizi Ramli.

NONEIn a Twitter posting today, Rafizi said he was approached by Sanjeevan (right) a day before the shooting, and he had asked for help in revealing the names of the rogue cops.

“I met Sanjeevan on Friday night. He talked about a list of drug related offences (and) wanted me to expose them. I said I will look at it later.

“Sanjeevan wanted my help to expose cops with links to drug syndicates,” he posted.

However, Rafizi said he was not certain whether the planned expose was related to Saturday’s attempted assassination against Sanjeevan.

‘Sanjeevan on to something’

The Pandan MP added that Sanjeevan was “the right trail of something” and the information he had was genuine.

“I am extremely shocked to find out he was shot,” said Rafizi.

Reval what happened to the reports lodged by Sanjeevan, police must launch full probe – Gobind

Written by Gobind Singh Deo

The DAP calls upon the IGP to ensure a full and thorough investigation into the shooting of MyWatch chief R Sri Sanjeevan.

Sanjeevan has in the past complained of threats to his life. He has also lodged police reports.

There is every possibility that Sanjeevan was shot due to his recent expose about police involvement in crime syndicates.

If this is true, then caution must be taken in dealing with the matter and a special team must be set up to investigate the matter. We must be sure that those assigned to this case are in no way connected to the complaints made by Sanjeevan in the past.

What happened to his previous reports

More importantly, the IGP should tell us what happened to the reports lodged by Sanjeevan prior to his shooting. Were there investigations and if so, what came out of it?

It is even more disheartening to read that Sanjeevan had complained hours before he was gunned down that he received news that “a cop had told some syndicate fellow that he would get them firearms” and planned shots to be fired at his house to scare him and his family.

The question is having been informed about the attempt on his life or harm upon him and his family and knowing that there were previous attempts on his life, did the police take any steps to protect him before he was shot?

This is to my mind a serious matter and one of immense public concern. If the government wants the public to assist the police in its fight against crime, if they want members of the public to participate in community policing and so forth, then it must convince the public, with the fullest of assurance, that it is safe to do so.

SHOT BY GUNMEN: Musa Hasan’s anti-crime chief in critical condition, time for tell-all

Written by Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle

It looks like the accusations by former police chief Musa Hassan and his anti-crime watchdog body that underworld syndicates had infiltrated the police force and that top politicians were interfering in police work have touched a sore spot.

R Sri Sanjeevan, the chairman of My Watch or The Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force, was shot at close range at 4.30pm yesterday at Taman Cempaka, Bahau.

Time to tell all

Musa, the former Inspector-General of Police who is the patron of MyWatch, had shocked the nation last year when he made public his allegations. During his time as the police chief, the scandal-tainted Musa too had been accused of being connected to underworld chiefs and protecting them from prosecution. He retired in 2009 and has tried to redeem his image by participating in several anti-crime crusades.

“This is terrible news and I hope that Musa Hassan will come out and reveal more of the truth. Don’t keep any more secrets. If they dare to go after Sanjeevan today, who will be next tomorrow?” PKR vice president Chua Jui Meng told Malaysia Chronicle.

Tip of the iceberg: Gambling, prostitution, money laundering

MyWatch had also claimed that it possessed evidence that top police officers were involved in criminal activities, including money laundering, gambling, prostitution and have direct links with underworld figures and kingpins.

Several recent cases including a robbery at a clinic where a Tan Sri had to whip out his gun and shoot dead one of the thieves have reignited public clamoring for tougher action against crime including the establishment of an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission.

IPCMC advocates believe its formation will  to help curb out-of-control crime by cleaning up and making more effective the police force.

Suspicion was also reignited that the main objection to the IPCMC’s formation by Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government was a reluctance to upset the big-time underworld chiefs whose connections and network into the police force ran deep and wide due to decades of inaction by the government.

Ex-IGP links Jempol shootings to expose on cops
7:10AM Jul 28, 2013

The attempt to murder anti-crime NGO MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan is likely linked to his recent exposé on police personnel with crime syndicates links, former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan said.

“I hope the police will do a thorough investigation to trace (the) suspect as he (Sanjeevan) had received several threats… (due to) his revelation on police involvement with activities of syndicated crime and illegal activities,” he said on Twitter late Saturday night.

NONESanjeevan, himself, appeared to have foretold his fate in a tweet hours before he was gunned down.

He also appeared to have tried to alert current Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar on the imminent threat.

“A cop told some syndicate fellow that he’ll get them firearm(s) and told them to fire shots at my house to scare me or my family,” he said, in the tweet, which tags both Khalid’s and the official Royal Police Force’s Twitter handles.

According to the Star, Sanjeevan was gunned down at about 4.30pm today in Jempol, Negri Sembilan.

Shot in the chest

Astro Awani, meanwhile, reports that the 29-year-old was shot in a cold-blooded fashion by two motorcyclists while he was driving, at a junction near Taman Cempaka there.

Here are some of his recent twits:

Anti-crime watchdog chief shot in Bahau, in critical condition

Latest Update: July 28, 2013 12:00 am

Anti-crime watchdog MyWatch chief R. Sri Sanjeevan was shot this evening in Bahau and is listed to be in critical condition, police said today.

Sanjeevan was in his car, a silver-coloured BMW, with the window open while smoking a cigarette, when two men on a red LC motorcycle approached from the back at an intersection in Taman Awana Indah, Bahau.

Sanjeevan had earlier picked up a friend from the latter’s home in the housing estate.

The pillion rider drew out a weapon and shot at Sanjeevan, hitting him in the right rib. The gunman then alighted from the motorcycle but the victim sped off.

The suspects then fled the scene, heading towards Rompin while the victim  drove on for 300m before his friend, B. Ramesh, took over the wheel and drove Sanjeevan to the Jempol Hospital.

Seremban police chief ACP Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the friend could not identify the suspects.

In an interview earlier this year, Sanjeevan said he has been receiving death threats but claimed he was not rattled as it came with the job.

Death threat for MyWatch chief

Teoh El Sen | January 1, 2013

MyWatch chairman R Sri Sanjeevan received a threatening call from an unknown person yesterday.

PETALING JAYA: The chairman of anti-crime watchdog MyWatch allegedly received a death threat yesterday, but has brushed it off as something that comes with the territory.

R Sri Sanjeevan told FMT he received a call from a private number and a rough voice spoke to him, saying: “You bastard. You watch out. We are going to shoot you down tonight. You are stepping on too many toes.”

But Sanjeevan said he was not rattled by the threat. He said: “I just replied him ‘I would be at PJ Hilton tonight. You can come and look for me.’ But he just hung up.”

He said that such calls were not something new to him, having received at least two other similar calls a few years back when he had highlighted cases of police abusing suspects. He was then the public complaints bureau head of the NGO Astivaaram Foundation.

“So this was very much anticipated. Seems like it always happens to me whenever I talk about the police,” he said.
