Duo Charged Over Sri Lanka Envoy Assault

Two men were charged in the Sepang Sessions Court today, with rioting and causing hurt, on Sri Lanka High Commissioner to Malaysia, Ibrahim Sahib Ansar, last Sunday.

Businessman, 25-year-old A. Kalaimughilan, and taxi driver V. Balamurugan, 34, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge, which was read out to them in Tamil, before judge Muhamad Faizal Ismail.

The court then allowed them bail of RM 7,000 in one surety each, and fixed October 7th for mention.

The duo, together with four others still at large, were accused of assaulting the Sri Lankan envoy and rioting at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on September 4.

The charge under Section 147 of the Penal Code carries a jails term up to two years or fine, if convicted.
