PKR's strategy chief disclosed today he had met with R. Sri Sanjeevan last week to talk about a possible expose on dirty policemen with underworld links in the wake of yesterday's shooting incident that has the MyWatch chairman now fighting for his life in a Negri Sembilan hospital.
Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli, 35, revealed this afternoon in a series of posts on his Twitter account, @rafiziramli, that he had met with Sanjeevan last Friday after the 29-year-old had asked for help to bring to light several policemen who allegedly had links with drug syndicates.
"I met @SanjeevanSS on Friday night. He talked abt a list of drug related offences, wanted me to expose. I said will look at it later.
"I am extremely shocked to find out he was shot. @SanjeevanSS was on the right trail of something and information he has is genuine," the opposition lawmaker tweeted.
"@SanjeevanSS wanted my help to expose cops with links to drug syndicates. Whether his shooting is related, I dont know," said Rafizi, who has made a name for himself as PKR's "expose man" when he revealed confidential information on the scandalous National Feedlot Centre (NFC) he linked to the family of political foe, Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.
Sanjeeevan got under the spotlight last night after he was shot at close range by two men on a motorcycle in an incident that left the bachelor from Negri Sembilan critically injured.
He was operated on earlier today to remove a bullet that had lodged itself in his right rib cage and is now at the Seremban general hospital's intensive care unit under tight police security.
The police have classified the case under section 307 of the Penal Code for attempted murder.
The head of the MyWatch crime watchdog has been shining the spotlight on police misconduct.
In an interview with a news portal earlier this year, the crime buster claimed to have received death threats from a man he suspected was with the police force but working in cahoots with illegal gambling syndicates in Negri Sembilan.
He made a similar allegation yesterday morning on his Twitter account, among the last messages he posted before getting shot.
“A @PDRMsia cop told some syndicate fellow that he’ll get them firearm & told them to fire few shots at my house to scare me/family!” he tweeted in @SanjeevanSS.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar vowed this morning to fully investigate the shooting.
Bukit Aman has formed a special task force to get to the bottom of the case.
