MyWatch advisor: Assassination attempt on Sanjeevan was only “a matter of time”
PETALING JAYA: It was only a matter of time before an assassination attempt was carried out on anti-crime activist R. Sri Sanjeevan, said MyWatch advisor S. Gobi Krishnan.
According to him, this was because Sanjeevan, who is also MyWatch chief, had alleged police involvement with the criminal underworld.
On July 24, Sanjeevan had tweeted from his @SanjeevanSS account: “Seriously thinking to expose on a top leader of @PDRMsia where his son is under payroll of kingpins and some syndicates. Interesting piece!”.
“After he tweeted that, I called him immediately to ask why he revealed our next course of action. Sometimes, you must do things quietly until you have everything lined up and ready to expose, though the temptation is there to reveal it beforehand,” said Gobi when contacted by The Star Online.

SHOT BY GUNMEN: Musa Hasan’s anti-crime chief in critical condition, time for tell-all
Written by Maria Begum, Malaysia Chronicle
It looks like the accusations by former police chief Musa Hassan and his anti-crime watchdog body that underworld syndicates had infiltrated the police force and that top politicians were interfering in police work have touched a sore spot.
R Sri Sanjeevan, the chairman of My Watch or The Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force, was shot at close range at 4.30pm yesterday at Taman Cempaka, Bahau.
Time to tell all
Musa, the former Inspector-General of Police who is the patron of MyWatch, had shocked the nation last year when he made public his allegations. During his time as the police chief, the scandal-tainted Musa too had been accused of being connected to underworld chiefs and protecting them from prosecution. He retired in 2009 and has tried to redeem his image by participating in several anti-crime crusades.
“This is terrible news and I hope that Musa Hassan will come out and reveal more of the truth. Don’t keep any more secrets. If they dare to go after Sanjeevan today, who will be next tomorrow?” PKR vice president Chua Jui Meng told Malaysia Chronicle.
Tip of the iceberg: Gambling, prostitution, money laundering
MyWatch had also claimed that it possessed evidence that top police officers were involved in criminal activities, including money laundering, gambling, prostitution and have direct links with underworld figures and kingpins.
Several recent cases including a robbery at a clinic where a Tan Sri had to whip out his gun and shoot dead one of the thieves have reignited public clamoring for tougher action against crime including the establishment of an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission.
IPCMC advocates believe its formation will to help curb out-of-control crime by cleaning up and making more effective the police force.
Suspicion was also reignited that the main objection to the IPCMC’s formation by Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government was a reluctance to upset the big-time underworld chiefs whose connections and network into the police force ran deep and wide due to decades of inaction by the government.
The attempt to murder anti-crime NGO MyWatch chairperson R Sri Sanjeevan is likely linked to his recent exposé on police personnel with crime syndicates links, former inspector-general of police Musa Hassan said.
“I hope the police will do a thorough investigation to trace (the) suspect as he (Sanjeevan) had received several threats… (due to) his revelation on police involvement with activities of syndicated crime and illegal activities,” he said on Twitter late Saturday night.
Sanjeevan, himself, appeared to have foretold his fate in a tweet hours before he was gunned down.
He also appeared to have tried to alert current Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar on the imminent threat.
“A cop told some syndicate fellow that he’ll get them firearm(s) and told them to fire shots at my house to scare me or my family,” he said, in the tweet, which tags both Khalid’s and the official Royal Police Force’s Twitter handles.
According to the Star, Sanjeevan was gunned down at about 4.30pm today in Jempol, Negri Sembilan.
Shot in the chest
Astro Awani, meanwhile, reports that the 29-year-old was shot in a cold-blooded fashion by two motorcyclists while he was driving, at a junction near Taman Cempaka there.
Sanjeevan has been in the news recently for exposing corruption in the police force. Previously he had informed FMT that he had received many death threats.

MyWatch Sanjeevan shot; critical in hospital
Anti-crime NGO MyWatch chief R Sri Sanjeevan is said to be in a critical but stable condition at the Kuala Pilah Hospital.
PETALING JAYA: MyWatch chairman R Sri Sanjeevan was shot by unknown gunmen in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan at about 4.30pm today.
His condition is reported to be critical but stable. Sanjeevan is now warded at the Kuala Pilah Hospital.
Speaking to FMT, MIC central working committee member G Kumar Aamaan confirmed the matter, saying he received the news from Sanjeevan’s father about three hours ago.
MyWatch, or The Malaysian Crime Watch Task Force, rose to prominence after its patron, former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan, made public several serious allegations in a few press conferences and interviews.
Anti-crime watchdog chief shot in Bahau, in critical condition
Anti-crime watchdog MyWatch chief R. Sri Sanjeevan was shot this evening in Bahau and is listed to be in critical condition, police said today.
Sanjeevan was in his car, a silver-coloured BMW, with the window open while smoking a cigarette, when two men on a red LC motorcycle approached from the back at an intersection in Taman Awana Indah, Bahau.
Sanjeevan had earlier picked up a friend from the latter’s home in the housing estate.
The pillion rider drew out a weapon and shot at Sanjeevan, hitting him in the right rib. The gunman then alighted from the motorcycle but the victim sped off.
The suspects then fled the scene, heading towards Rompin while the victim drove on for 300m before his friend, B. Ramesh, took over the wheel and drove Sanjeevan to the Jempol Hospital.
Seremban police chief ACP Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the friend could not identify the suspects.
In an interview earlier this year, Sanjeevan said he has been receiving death threats but claimed he was not rattled as it came with the job.

Death threat for MyWatch chief
MyWatch chairman R Sri Sanjeevan received a threatening call from an unknown person yesterday.
PETALING JAYA: The chairman of anti-crime watchdog MyWatch allegedly received a death threat yesterday, but has brushed it off as something that comes with the territory.
R Sri Sanjeevan told FMT he received a call from a private number and a rough voice spoke to him, saying: “You bastard. You watch out. We are going to shoot you down tonight. You are stepping on too many toes.”
But Sanjeevan said he was not rattled by the threat. He said: “I just replied him ‘I would be at PJ Hilton tonight. You can come and look for me.’ But he just hung up.”
He said that such calls were not something new to him, having received at least two other similar calls a few years back when he had highlighted cases of police abusing suspects. He was then the public complaints bureau head of the NGO Astivaaram Foundation.
“So this was very much anticipated. Seems like it always happens to me whenever I talk about the police,” he said.
