38 Y.O MAN WANTED FOR KLIA SHOOTING CASE, HE WANTED TO SHOOT PREGNANT WIFE

In a shocking turn of events, Hafizul Harawi, a 38-year-old man, has been identified as the suspect in a shooting incident that took place at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Terminal 1 arrival hall. The incident occurred in the early hours of Apr. 14, when Hafizul fired two shots at his wife, missing her but injuring her personal bodyguard instead. Hafizul has three criminal records, including two for criminal intimidation and one for theft and impersonating a civil servant.

The suspect’s wife had previously filed two reports against him for criminal intimidation, one in 2016 and another in 2023. After the most recent report was lodged in December last year, the police arrested Hafizul, but the investigation is still ongoing. Following the incident, the wife hired bodyguards for her protection.

At the airport, Hafizul approached his wife while throwing firecrackers, causing injuries to two members of the public. He then opened fire about three to four meters away from his wife, who was accompanied by two bodyguards. Hafizul then fled the scene in a car parked at level two of Block C, believed to be heading northwards. Around 30 people were present at the scene, including members of the public and the airport’s auxiliary police.

Hafizul and his wife, Farah Md Isa, own a travel agency together and were in the midst of a divorce. The wife is believed to be in the early stages of pregnancy. She has since posted on Facebook that her bodyguard was shot and a police report has been lodged. However, she has been advised not to make any statements regarding the case for the time being.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director Commissioner Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain held a press conference at KLIA on Apr. 14, urging anyone who spots the suspect to share the information with the police but not to act alone, as the suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
