KUALA LUMPUR, 11 May 2009: Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk T Murugiah has received two bullet casings and a note which warned him against contesting for any posts in the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) elections.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Wira Muhammad Sabtu Osman said the 9mm bullet casings were recovered from a parcel which was received by Murugiah’s office in Putrajaya at 2.30pm today.
“Murigiah was threatened with death should he vie for any posts in the PPP elections,” Muhammad Sabtu told Bernama via a short messaging service today.
The PPP executive council has taken a decision to sack Murugiah on 9 May for purportedly being involved in money politics.
Murugiah, 45, responded by saying that he had no intention of challenging PPP president Datuk M Kayveas at party polls next month. — Bernama
