SHAH ALAM – Within three days, police have arrested six suspects for allegedly kidnapping and causing the death of a businesswoman, 59, abducted in Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya, near here, last Friday.
The body of the Sikh woman was discovered the next day in a coastal area in Sungai Udang, Penang, and the kidnappers had demanded a ransom of RM2 million from the victim’s family for her release.
Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah said, in the first operation on Saturday, a police special force detained a man in Subang Jaya at 3.20am.
After interrogating the suspect, police arrested two men and two women at the Gua Tempurung, North-South Highway rest area and in a house in Bukit Gambir, Penang on Sunday.
“We then nabbed another male suspect in a house in Minden Heights, Gelugor, Penang and seized several mobile phones and a rented Toyota Vellfire van believed to have been used to transport the victim to the north,” he said in a press conference here today.
The suspects, aged between 19 and 28 years, were being remanded until Feb 22 to assist in investigations under Section 3 (1) of the Kidnapping Act 1961.
“Further checks revealed that some of the suspects had previously worked with the victim and her husband who run a marble business, however, the real motive is still under investigation,” said Mohd. Adnan.
He said police were also looking for another suspect, S.Vivegkananthaa, 23, whose last known address is No. 33, Changkat Minden, Jalan Sungai Gelugor, Penang, to assist in investigations.
Anyone with information on the man are urged to contact Head of Subang Jaya Criminal Investigation Department, DSP Mohd Radzi Ahmad at 019-4418818 or investigating officer ASP Norazmi Yaacob at 019-8128911. – BERNAMA
