JOHOR BARU - A 52-year-old hospital maintenance worker broke his leg after being allegedly hit by a police car during last Saturday's Bersih rally in Kuala Lumpur.
Fadzil Salleh said he was standing with a dozen people on a divider in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman when the car plowed into a group of people at about 4.30pm.
"It happened so quickly. The car swerved to the right and then hit another person before hitting me.
"I was flung and lost consciousness for 10 to 15 minutes," he said during a press conference here yesterday.
Fadzil, who is a PAS member, said he was taken to KL Hospital for treatment and received six stitches on his forehead.
"They also put a cast on my right leg and gave me three days' medical leave before discharging me," he said, adding that he returned to Johor the same day.
Fadzil sought the assistance of Pasir Gudang complaints centre supervisor Syed Othman Syed Abdullah to lodge a police report in Sri Alam on Sunday.
"We will provide legal aid for Fadzil and will assist police in their investigations," Syed Othman said.
