Cops looking for two suspects in murder of three Sri Lankan men

KUALA LUMPUR: Police are still looking for two suspects in connection with the murder of three Sri Lankan men in a house at Jalan Perhentian Kampung Kovil Hilir, Sentul, here on Friday.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the police were still tracking down the location of the two suspects, who are also Sri Lankan nationals.

"Further investigation is underway and we are still tracking down the suspects. We will update on any latest developments," he said when contacted.

He said initial investigations found that the victims knew the suspects.

Yesterday, Allaudeen told a press conference that three Sri Lankan men were found dead with their hands and feet tied and their heads covered in plastic at a residence on a four-storey shophouse lot at around 11pm.

The bodies were found stacked in the house store, with one of them naked.

He said inspection at the house found a Sri Lankan couple in their 40s who were renting the house. They were detained from yesterday (Sept 23) until Sept 29 to assist with the investigation.

"Investigations found that two Sri Lankan suspects who live in Klang, Selangor, had gone to the house to visit the couple they had known for the past six months.

"They are said to have been living in the house for the past two days. Based on this information, we believe this was a planned crime," he said.
