Armed robbers slashed an airline executive to death outside her Ampang house last night just as Putrajaya ramped up the war on crime after a recent spike in gun-related violence.
AirAsia X officer Shahrinawati Abu Bakar, 30, died on the way to hospital after armed robbers set upon her when she parked her car outside her house in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.
"They slashed her with a parang," according to an AirAsia X email sighted by The Malaysian Insider.
AirAsia X chief executive Azran Osman-Rani paid tribute to Shahrinawati, saying "she was a promising young talent" who had been sent to Melbourne to get international experience.
"She was engaged to one of our security officers and they were to be married in three months time," said his email to the airline staff.
