KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 10 (Bernama) -- Raja Azman Raja Petra, a son of Malaysia Today editor Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin, who was recently jailed for theft has been warded after he was believed to have swallowed a razor blade.
Gombak police chief ACP Abdul Rahim Abdullah said the 34-year-old Raja Azman was spotted in a weak condition in his cell at the Sungai Buloh Prison by a warder while making his rounds on Tuesday evening.
Abdul Rahim said Raja Azman, who also had slashes on his wrist, was immediately rushed to the Sungai Buloh Hospital and was reported to be in a stable condition.
In his blog, Raja Petra claimed that his son inflicted the injuries as he could no longer take the physical and mental torture he was subjected to by the prison authorities.
Rahim, however, refused to comment on the allegation.
"Investigations are still at the early stages. Give us time," he said when contacted.
