Slain amok said to be a deviant

Pytrejaya - Samurai sword-wielding Khalil Afandi Abd Hamid, who died after he was shot twice by police in the Putrajaya breaching drama, was believed to belong to a deviationist sect and mentally unsound as well.
Police are investigating which sect he belonged to, said city police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohmad Salleh.

Writings on Khalil's blog seemed to indicate that he was very much involved with the sect.
"We have yet to establish his links with the sect, including who the leader is and how many followers belonged to the sect," he said during a press conference at city police headquarters yesterday.
DCP Mohmad said it was too early for police to comment further, and appealed for information on Khalil or the sect.

Khalil and a woman, later identified as 28-year-old Muhdalina Ahmad, had walked towards the Prime Minister's Department complex and whipped out samurai swords on Monday.
In the half-hour drama that followed, they held a policeman hostage, attacked a few others and smashed cars before police opened fire at the duo to subdue them.
Khalil later died in the hospital while the woman is still receiving treatment.
DCP Mohmad also defended his men's actions in shooting the two, saying the shots were meant to disarm them and that the shots were aimed at the arms and legs.
There was no intention to shoot to kill, he added.
DCP Mohmad said police had recovered two samurai swords and a meat cleaver which was inscribed with jawi characters.

"We will wait for the post- mortem results to ascertain the cause of death," he said.
Meanwhile, attempts to interview Khalil's family for comments were futile.
Reporters who attempted to speak to the man's family in Taman Medan in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, were told to leave them alone. When reporters persisted, one of them was almost assaulted.
Bernama reported that Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the security of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was not compromised at any time during the amok drama at Complex B of the Prime Minister's Department.

"I can confirm that the Prime Minister's security was not compromised at any time. The police are still investigating the motive, links, plans, etc.
"Give them time to do their job," he said in a posting on his Facebook page yesterday.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom said The Islamic Development Department (Jakim) had been instructed to find out whether the group was religious-based or involved in other teachings.
