Woman stages own abduction
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.
