Tampin - May 08 - A chief inspector was slashed by an assailant outside his house in Taman Bukit Tampin near here, after returning home from playing badminton on Thursday night.
He suffered injuries on his face, back and hands, and was rushed to the district hospital in an ambulance and later transferred to the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital in Seremban.
When met at the hospital Friday, Mohd Zain said he had almost reached his house when two men on a motorcycle cut into his path and asked him to stop.
“I had no idea why they stopped me. As I got out of the car, one of them took out a machete and attacked me.
“The incident happened so fast that I couldn’t even see their faces clearly,” he said, adding that both men could be in their 30s.
His attackers fled when Mohd Zain screamed in pain.
Mohd Zain’s son, Mohd Nazrullah, 24, when met at the hospital said doctors told him his father’s condition was stable.
“I rushed back from Kuantan when my family notified me of the attack.
“We have no clue why this happened,” he said.

“There were no eyewitnesses,” he said.
