KLIA shooting: Suspect faces multiple charges in court

PETALING JAYA (ANN/THE STAR) – The suspect linked to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) shooting in Sepang has been taken to the Kota Baru court in Kelantan to face multiple charges. 

Clad in lock-up attire and escorted by police officers, the man arrived at the court complex at around 8:30 am on April 24.

Kelantan police chief Datuk Muhamad Zaki Harun said the suspect, Hafizul Harawi, would be charged for committing firearms-related offences.

The 38-year-old suspect would also be charged under the Road Transport Act 1987 and National Registration Regulations 1990.

On April 14 morning, Hafizul shot at his wife in an attempt to kill her at the KLIA Terminal 1 arrival hall.

His intended target, travel agency owner Farah Md Isa, was waiting at the arrival hall for her clients to return from umrah.

The suspect set off some firecrackers before opening fire at the victim at close range.

Her bodyguard managed to save her but was shot in the stomach. Hafizul then escaped to his car parked at Block C of the airport car park.

Police arrested Hafizul in Kota Baru at 3pm on April 15 after a two-day manhunt.
