Kota Bharu: The charred remains of a 15-year-old girl who was reported missing for 20 days was found at a palm oil estate in Kampung Baru, South Kelantan Development Authority (Kesedar) area, Jeram Tekoh, near here, yesterday.
The victim was identified as Nor Aini Shafnie Mohd Azizi whose burnt body was found at 6pm by a lorry driver known as Yusuf Mohd next to a motorcycle that the girl rode on April 3 when she was last seen.
Kelantan police chief Datuk Jalaluddin Abdul Rahman said the victim, the youngest of 10 siblings, failed to return home after she went out on the motorcycle.
"Her sister Norhayati Mohd Azizi then lodged a report at the Gua Musang police station at 4am the next day."
Jalaluddin said the case was initially investigated under a missing person case but after the discovery of her body, it was now classified under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
The victim's burnt remains have been sent to Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital.
Jalaluddin said eight suspects aged 17 to 30, including two women, had been detained to assist the investigation. He added that six of them, including one of the women, were tested positive for drugs and he did not dismiss the possibility of the case being linked to drug abuse. -- Bernama
