SEREMBAN: A 46-year-old businessman has lodged a police report after a man allegedly opened fire at his car on Saturday.

The man,had stopped at a traffic light junction near Rasah Prima around 6.30pm when he heard sounds of a gun being fired.

Seremban OCPD ACP Thiew Hock Poh said moments later, the businessman saw a man on a motorcycle next to his car.

"He could not recognise the motorcyclist who was wearing a helmet and had a black jacket on. The businessman also claimed that the motorcyclist was holding a gun-like object and rode away a short while later," he said adding that it was raining heavily when the incident happened.

ACP Thiew said the businessman stopped his car a short distance away and was shocked to see what looked like bullet marks on the left back door and bumper.

"The businessman immediately drove to the Seremban 2 police station and lodged a report," he said adding that he was alone when the incident happened.

The case, he said, was being investigated under section 3 of the Firearms Act 1971.

ACP Thiew urged witnesses to assist in the probe and call investigating officer Insp Suhaila Abdullah at 06-603 3222 or the nearest police station.
