Assault on disabled driver due to misunderstanding — KL police

KUALA LUMPUR, May 29 — A misunderstanding over instructions to move a vehicle may have been why a disabled person was assaulted by a VIP’s bodyguard at a hotel lobby yesterday.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Rusdi Mohd Isa said they received a report at 1pm yesterday from the victim, an e-hailing driver, who claimed he was attacked by an individual who was part of a VIP entourage.

“However, the 46-year-old victim filed a second police report at 9.59pm stating that the matter had been resolved amicably and that he did not wish to pursue the case further,” he said in a statement today.

According to news reports, the e-hailing driver claimed he was assaulted by the bodyguard while waiting for a passenger at the hotel in Brickfields.

The driver said he was punched in the head and asked to move his vehicle. He lodged a police report after receiving treatment at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
