KUALA LUMPUR (July 9): Six individuals, including a man with the "Datuk" title and a Bangladeshi man, will be charged in the Petaling Jaya Magistrate’s Court here today with the abduction and murder of a businessman with the "Datuk Seri" title.
Selangor Criminal Investigation Department (CID) chief Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said the six men would be charged under Section 3 of the Kidnapping Act 1961, read together with Section 34 of the Penal Code.
“Eleven arrests have been made throughout the investigation into the case and the Attorney-General’s Chambers has issued a directive for the six suspects to be charged”, he said in a statement today.
The police investigation revealed that one of the suspects had made a ransom demand of S$50 million (RM153.21 million) from the victim’s family through a phone call, but no payment was made.
On July 2, Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Huzir Mohamed said that the police did not rule out debt and business issues as motives behind the kidnapping-cum-murder.
