Acting Sultan gives RM100,000 to shot palace guard’s family

Acting Kelantan Sultan, Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra, today gave a cash contribution of RM100,000 to Ramli Mohamad, 50, the Kelantan palace guard who was shot at close range by four unidentified assailants on May 1.

Kelantan royal household comptroller Datuk Mohd Halim Hamad said the personal contribution from Tengku Muhammad was to ease the burden of Ramli’s wife and five children.

Mohd Halim said Ramli, who has worked at the palace for 17 years, was now in critical condition.

“The acting Kelantan Sultan is very concerned with the condition of Ramli who is receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital (HRPZII).

“The doctors have managed to remove the bullet but his condition remains critical because some of his important organs are infected,” he told reporters after visiting Ramli here today.

In the 12.25am incident on May 1, Ramli, who lives in Kampung Sungai Pinang, was on his way home after duty at the Kubang Kerian palace when he was shot near Kampung Sungai Nyior, Palekbang, Tumpat.

Halim said the police were still carrying out investigations on the incident.

He added that despite the recent conflict in the Kelantan palace, Tengku Muhammad Faris continues to show love and affection towards his family, especially his father, Tuanku Ismail Petra, who is the Sultan of Kelantan.

The Kelantan royal family conflict started after Tuanku Ismail Petra was admitted to the HUSM Hospital in Kubang Kerian on May 14 last year and later to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore on May 24 due to illness.

Tuanku Ismail returned to Kelantan on March 3, but was again admitted to HUSM on May 4 for follow-up treatment.

However, Tuanku Ismail’s third son, Tengku Temenggong Tengku Muhammad Fakhry Petra, had told reporters that he would take his father back to Singapore for treatment, but the purported flight was barred from landing at the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport while Tengku Muhammad Faris issued a directive to the police that any intended movement of the Sultan would require his approval. — Bernama
