Lazarus said that it is alleged that the suspects followed the complainant from the bank. “Members of the public are urged to refrain from making large withdrawals and rather use electronic banking facilities. The shot suspect is still in hospital under police guard,” he added. Private security PT Alarms who was patrolling in the area responded to the scene minutes after the shooting. Spokesperson for PT Alarms, Dhevan Govindasamy, said:“It is alleged that the suspects believed to be travelling in a white Toyota Etios confronted the resident who was entering his property.
