USJ2 Guards Attacked by Parang Wielding Men on Sat Nite
Received this news on the latest attack on USJ2 Guards.
Our Guard was attacked and slashed in Surau Car Park in Jalan 2/4S at 12.05 a.m. last night. Lal Bahadur was returning to Guard Post 1 after patrolling and clocking-in for the 11.00 p.m. round when he was attacked by 3 Indian men from a car parked in the Surau Car Park Area.
He was slashed in the forearm, chest and stomach area simultaneously by the 3 parang wielding Indian men while the fourth remained in the parked car. See attached photos of the injuries on the Guard.
The manner in which the guard was attacked (unprovoked, intentional and brutal) was similiar to the attack which occurred on 4 months ago, on 10th February 2012 on our Guard stationed at Guard Post 1.
In the 10th February 2012 incident, the gang drove around to watch the guards, parked their car at a distance and attacked the Guard when he was left alone in the Guard Post 1.
In today's incident, the gang parked in the Surau Car Park and watched the Guard who went around patrolling and clocking-in Jalan 2/4R; 2/4P; 2/4Q area. The Guard was attacked when he was returning to his station at Guard Post 1.
According to the Night Shift Head Guard Paramjit, Guard Lal Bahadur was in actively contact via Walkie Talkie while on his patrol round. On the start of his patrol round, Lal had observed the four Indian men in a dark coloured and relatively old car or rather unkept externally waiting in a car parked in the unlighted Surau Car Park area.
Lal being a Nepalese and relatively new, was unable to identify the make and model. He also did not take note of the registration number, probably because it was parked in the unlighted area.
When Lal Bahadur passed by on way back to Guard Post 1, one of the occupants alighted and waved to the guard to come, as if wanting to ask for direction. When Lal saw the Indian man was armed, he reached out for his baton to approach the stranger.
At that instance, two others also armed with parang alighted and approached Lal Bahadur, uttered "Apa selalu ronda-ronda, kami mahu cari makan susah" and slashing him - on the chest, forearm and stomach.
The Guard backed into the surau and the gang drove off. Lal called the Head Guard and the team went to his aid at the surau. The Inland Supervisor who came to the scence to take charge called to notify me and the EXCO members who went immediately to the scene include Mr. Har Gin Yeong, Mr. Abdul Ghani Aziz and Tuan Syed Zain who also called the police.
As I was away in Klang, I arrived at the scene at about 1.00 a.m. and spoke to the Head Guard. The patrol rounds for 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. was cancelled.
There will be a meeting at 6.30 p.m. this evening with all the Guards, Inland Supervisor and the EXCO at Guard Post 1. Kindly come if able.
Pity the guard. Come to Malaysia to cari makan and almost lost his life (to some others who wanted to "cari makan"!)
I think the police ought to start doing some serious work here. Need not check on who is on the handphone while driving. Need not check on who is wearing seat belt or not. Just do some un-announced roadblocks and check every single suspicious car/bikes. If weapons (eg parang) or house-breaking tools found, masuk lokap, talk later. When was the last time the police did this in Subang/USJ?
This is already the 2nd time that our guards were attacked by parang-wielding men. First time was in Feb this year. The attack was by the previous security firm that was upset over the termination of their contract. The guard was slashed with parang on his legs, arms and head. Terribly bloody event.
It's really pitiful of these foreign guards who came to our country to earn a living and ended up being victims of crimes!
Another thing that upset me are all those who are not willing to pay for the security service of the guards!!! Free loaders who get the service without paying. See what these guards are getting for their work!
