Woman stages own ab­duc­tion

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KLANG: A woman al­legedly staged her own kid­nap­ping fear­ing her hus­band would find out about her af­fair with an­other man, said to be the “kid­nap­per”.

The drama un­folded when her hus­band, 55, could not lo­cate his wife when he went to fetch her from her work­place on Fri­day.

North Klang dis­trict po­lice chief ACP Maze­lan Pai­jan said the hus­band nor­mally dropped the 40-year-old woman, who is a cleaner in a school, at about 6.30am ev­ery­day.

“The man will then pick her up from the school at about 4.30pm. That was the rou­tine. How­ever on Fri­day, she went miss­ing as the hus­band couldn’t lo­cate her when he went to the school,” he said yes­ter­day. A po­lice re­port was lodged sub­se­quently. “The fol­low­ing day, on Satur­day at about 8.30am, the man re­ceived a phone call from his wife’s hand­phone. The caller de­manded RM5,000 ran­som to se­cure her ‘re­lease’,” said Maze­lan.

North Klang dis­trict po­lice se­ri­ous crime in­ves­ti­ga­tion di­vi­sion im­me­di­ately ini­ti­ated a probe and nabbed a woman on Mon­day, be­lieved to be in­volved in the al­leged kid­nap­ping.

Fol­low­ing the ar­rest, po­lice res­cued the vic­tim at 11.30am on the same day in front of a ma­mak restau­rant along Jalan Meru, here.
