Mur­der probe leads to pis­tols find in Putrajaya lake

The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

PE­TAL­ING JAYA: The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mur­der of a man who was shot dead at an up­scale house in Ban­dar Tun Hus­sein Onn, Cheras, last week has led po­lice to a lake in Putrajaya.

The case, which had so far seen 13 peo­ple ar­rested, had el­e­ments of un­der­world links, po­lice said.

Se­lan­gor CID chief Se­nior Asst Comm Fadzil Ah­mat said their in­ves­ti­ga­tion led them to the lake where two pis­tols were found.

“The pis­tols had live bul­lets in them,” he said yes­ter­day.

The mur­der vic­tim, a 39-year-old, was found dead on the third floor of the house in Jalan Suakasih 2/2 on March 10.

The man from Jalan Ipoh, and whose name is be­ing with­held by po­lice, ap­par­ently came to the house just af­ter mid­night to meet a friend, a businessman.

The 54-year-old businessman claimed that he rushed up­stairs when he heard a gun­shot at about 3am. Po­lice, how­ever, found el­e­ments of foul play and ar­rested most of the peo­ple in the house.

A check at the scene showed a Mercedes-Benz parked in front of the house with VIP and VVIP stick­ers on the wind­shield.
