Kidnap victim found killed

PORT DICKSON: A 20-year-old student, kidnapped from his home in Bukit Rimau on Jan 25, was found brutally murdered at an oil palm plantation in Sua Betong along the Port Dickson-Pasir Panjang road near here yesterday.

Plantation workers stumbled on the gruesome find at around 7am as they were about to start work.

State police chief SAC I Datuk Os­­man Salleh said the victim’s remains were identified by his father at the hospital mortuary in the afternoon.

“The victim’s neck was almost severed and he also had slash wounds on his face and shoulder.

“We had difficulties identifying him earlier as he did not have any documents on him,” he said.

The victim was a student at a private college near his home.

SAC Osman said Selangor police had earlier identified a suspect involved in the kidnapping.

“I was told that the suspect was related to the victim,” he said, adding that police had yet to establish if the suspect was also involved in the victim’s death.

The victim, who was the only son in the family, had two younger sisters.

It is learnt that the suspect had called the victim’s father a day after his disappearance and demanded a RM100,000 ransom.

However, the father pleaded with the suspect to reduce the sum because he could not raise the amount being a taxi driver.

After negotiations, the suspect agreed to reduce the ransom to RM15,000. The Star

Malaysia has become so unsafe that this is happening even to working class folks!!!
