Man shot after refusing to stop at checkpoint

A 25-year-old Kampong Chhnang native will think twice before skipping a police checkpoint, after his refusal to halt resulted in a police chase and a slug in the leg yesterday afternoon.

With two pals riding pillion, the obstinate young man decided to give the checkpoint a miss. This didn’t go down well with the traffic cops manning the post, who gave chase.

While making a dash for Svay Pak village, their bid for freedom turned sour when cops popped a round off in the driver’s leg.
