PENANG, 20 Feb 2009: DAP chairperson Karpal Singh lodged a police report today over a letter containing two live bullets which he received in his postbox yesterday.
He made the report at the Penang police headquarters, accompanied by his son, Jagdeep Singh Deo.
When met by reporters after lodging the report, he said the bullets together with a note were found in an envelope by his clerk yesterday morning.
“The envelope was found in my postbox at 144A, Jalan Utama, Penang, by my clerk, Ahad Hassan, and it was handed to my legal firm at No 17 Green Hall, here.
“When opened at my office by another clerk, Nazimah, the envelope was found to contain two live bullets and a handwritten note,” he said.
Karpal urged the police to carry out thorough investigations as the sender had threatened to kill his family.
He believed that the threat was related to the Perak political issue. — Bernama
