A leader of an Indian-based NGO was slashed in the neck by a “stalker” on Wednesday, 27 July.
Persatuan Harapan India Malaysia chairman M Mani Maran was just about to leave a printing shop around 1.40pm in Kajang when the assailant approached him and asked him about a certain individual.
When Mani refused to entertain the man and walked away, the assailant took out a blade and slashed his neck before fleeing.
According to Free Malaysia Today, Mani received 16 stitches at the hospital following the attack.
I have no idea how he knew where I was. I believe he stalked me for the past few days. I was actually going to the MACC office again to lodge a report against a politician who had just purchased a sports car.Persatuan Harapan India Malaysia chairman M Mani Maran speaking about the assailant.
Mani said the male assailant, believed to be in his late 30s, had previously approached him outside the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters in Putrajaya after he lodged a report against a Cabinet member on 22 July.
The Cabinet member is said to have been involved in false claims and misappropriation of funds from the PenjanaKerjaya hiring incentive programme.
