Six suspects in Datuk Seri's kidnap-murder to be charged today

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.

Bernama previously reported that the body of a 55-year-old businessman was found at Batu 27, Jalan Rawang Bestari Jaya on June 27.

The victim, also a property developer, is believed to have been abducted while working out at a playground in Jalan Persiaran Perdana, Bandar Sri Damansara, Petaling Jaya at 10.30am on June 10.

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.
