SEREMBAN: Three men and a woman suspected of killing an insurance company worker following the discovery of a human skeleton in Gadong, Tanjong Sepat in Kuala Langat, Selangor, on Dec 2 will be charged in a magistrate’s court here tomorrow.
Seremban district police chief Nanda Maarof said the suspects, aged between 25 and 51, would be charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder after the investigation papers had been referred to the deputy public prosecutor.
He said extortion was believed to be the motive of the murder. On Nov 12, a 44-year-old insurance company worker lodged a police report after failing to contact her husband who was working in the same company. He had gone out alone in his car the same day.
“Five days later (on Nov 16), the victim’s car was found locked by the roadside at Jalan Permata Kiri, Kampung Olak Lempit, Banting, Selangor, but the victim was not there.
“However, on Dec 2, police found a human skeleton among some undergrowth near Gadong, Tanjong Sepat, believed to be that of the victim. An investigation paper was opened under Section 302 of the Penal Code,” he said in a statement today.
He added that further investigation led to the arrest of the four suspects.
