A taxi driver has filed a negligence suit against the Government and a policeman for wrongfully firing a gunshot and injuring both his legs while he was taking a nap in his cab.
Yeow Leong Kang, 42, is claiming RM214,000 in damages, interests, costs and any other relief deemed fit by the court over the shooting incident. He has named Detective Lance Corporal Norhesham Mohd Nor from the Cheras district police station's narcotics criminal investigations division and the Government as the defendants.
Yeow filed the lawsuit at the Sessions Court registry through his lawyer Lim Lip Eng yesterday.
In a statement of claim, Yeow said that Detective L/Kpl Norhesham had negligently fired a shot without any warning. At the time he had parked his taxi beside a bus stop near the Jalan Pudu post-office at 4.30pm on Sept 23 last year. He is contending that Detective L/Kpl Norhesham had failed to ensure the safety of the public. He said he was taken to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia for treatment and discharged after three days. He claimed that he suffered humiliation as he was shot by the police in a public place and this also caused him to suffer tremendous psychological and mental stress, pain and loss of dignity.
In the lawsuit, he claimed that Detective L/Kpl Norhesham had visited him at the hospital and apologised to him repeatedly and admitted that he had wrongfully shot him. Yeow made a police report at the Pudu police station over the incident on Dec 10 last year.
