SHAH ALAM: A Hong Kong businessman was robbed of about RM2 million in diamonds while he was in a taxi heading for the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to catch a flight home last Thursday.
The taxi was rammed by a car shortly after it passed the KLIA toll plaza. Several men rushed into the taxi and grabbed the bag containing the diamonds and drove off.
The businessman came to Malaysia to sell diamonds to jewellers. Those stolen were the unsold ones. He lodged a police report and then took the next flight back to Hong Kong.
A police source said police had arrested six people, including at least one woman, aged between 24 and 45. They are all from Colombia.
