PETALING JAYA: Two ‘kuih’ sellers were each sentenced to four years’ jail and a stroke of the cane by the Sessions Court here today, when they pleaded guilty to robbing a doctor and her two staff at a clinic last month, while armed with two machetes.
Judge Yasmin Abdul Razak ordered Ahmad Eskandar Abu Kasim, from Kuang, and Mazalan Kamaruddin, from Ulu Yam, to serve the sentences from the date of their arrest on Nov 27.
