Body found in suitcase in KL



The body of a man stuffed inside a suitcase was found at Jalan 3, Pandan Industri in Pandan Indah, Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

The victim, who is believed to have been murdered, was bundled up in a rug and tied with a cable.

Ampang Jaya District police chief ACP Noor Azmi Yusoff said members of the public discovered the body at 8.52am when they spotted legs jutting out of the blue suitcase.

He said the victim was fully clothed, without shoes.

“The post-mortem at Kuala Lumpur Hospital found signs of strangulation with bruises on the body," he said in a statement tonight.

He said police were trying to ascertain the deceased's identity and have classified the case under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

Noor Azmi said the public may contact investigating officer ASP Saiful Azhar Rahim at 011-12116458 should they have information on the case.
