Justice For Robber

More than 30 people held a peaceful protest here to call for justice over the death of contractor P. Kathir Oli who was shot dead by a policeman during a robbery.

The group gathered in front of the Perak police headquarters where they displayed a giant banner calling on state police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan not to endorse the alleged killing.

It was reported that Kathir Oli, 31, was shot dead during a scuffle with a detective, who had allegedly tried to stop him from robbing a pub at 12.10am on Sept 15.

In a press conference following the incident, DCP Mohd Shukri had told reporters that the detective had rushed into the pub after hearing the pub owner screaming for help.
