Two unidentified men shot and wounded the driver of former attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail at the victim's house in Ampang Perdana this morning.
In the 8.30am incident, the men reportedly approached the victim on the pretext of asking for directions before shooting at him in the leg. According to China Press, police are investigating the motive and attempting to identify the assailants.
Gani was about to charge PM Najib with offences related to the 1MDB theft when he was sacked.This may well be a warning to him ,or an attempt on the driver's life, given that driver's are often well informed of what their bosses do.
The incident coincides with the FBI's fears for witnesses to the 1MDB theft.
