PUTRAJAYA - The daily routine at Complex B of the Prime Minister's Department turned chaotic when a man and woman, seemingly harmless as they approached the entrance, suddenly whipped out samurai swords.
The pair triggered security to swing into action when they started to wave the swords menacingly.
The two damaged cars and attacked policemen before being shot. The man, identified as Khalil Afandi Abd Hamid, 37, later died at the Putrajaya Hospital.
When they showed up at the entrance of the office at 2.30pm yesterday, an auxiliary policeman rushed out to stop them from entering but was instead taken hostage.
"The man held the samurai sword to the policeman's neck and walked past the security post before releasing him," said Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Razak Majid.
"The duo then ran amok and smashed the windows of a Hyundai Accent and a Perodua Kancil parked in the open air car park of the complex," he said, adding that the rampage lasted about five minutes before an anti-crime squad arrived.
ACP Abdul Razak said the two were very aggressive and even attacked members of the squad by smashing the front windscreen of their vehicle.
At the same time, two officers arrived in another vehicle and attempted to apprehend the duo but they, too, were attacked.
