The 50-year-old had sent his car to a car-wash near his home in Changkat Lallang near here when he complained of chest pains.

He borrowed a bicycle from one of the carwash workers to go to the nearest pharmacy.

His body was found at a slip road by passersby at 11:15am, Batu Gajah OCPD ACP Najib Mohamad said.

Roslan, who leaves behind a wife and 10 children, was formerly the human resource director of Perak Economic Development Corporation.

In the March 8 general election last year, he had polled 20,015 votes against Abdul Azim Mohd Zabidi’s (Barisan Nasional) 18,449 votes. The third candidate was an independent, M. Morgan, who got 872 votes.
