PASIR MAS – An online jewellery and cosmetics trader was assaulted by three robbers, one of whom shot the victim in the right leg at his office located in a double-storey shophouse in Banggol Kulim here last night.
Mohd Irfan Abdullah, 26, sustained a gunshot wound in the calf during the 11.30pm hold-up in the upper floor.
The robbers who were masked escaped with RM150,000 in jewellery and RM8,000 in a white Perodua Kancil.
Pasir Mas police chief, ACP Abdullah Mohammad Piah said initial investigations revealed the victim was assaulted by the robbers before he was shot in the right calf.
