Police form special task force to trace missing pastor

comments         Published     Updated

Police have formed a special task force to investigate the case relating to a missing pastor in Jalan Bahagia, Petaling Jaya on Feb 14.

Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar said the task force was led by Selangor CID chief Fadzil Ahmat.

"Police have taken statements from eight witnesses to help investigations but there were no new leads so far," he said in a media conference in Bukit Aman in Kuala Lumpur today.

The pastor was believed to have been abducted by several individuals while driving alone on that stretch of road.

In another development, when asked to comment on the death of a detainee in the Klang Utara district police headquarters on Feb 10, Khalid said the case was being investigated.

Commenting on the case of a businesswoman shot dead in George Town yesterday, Khalid said police are still investigating the real motive of the incident.

"Give us time to investigate the case and the police are currently probing the background of the decreased's husband, including his work background," he said.
