However, it was only after an autopsy was done that the 19-year-old was revealed to be a victim of foul play.
A Hit-And-Run Victim
According to Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Abd Khalid Othman, the post-mortem report obtained from Shah Alam Hospital identified the cause of death as “blunt trauma to the head consistent with road traffic incident”.
The victim was found to have bruises around his head and back area. However, nothing was stolen from his body, nor was there any traces of a vehicle accident in the area.
Hence, the police suspect that he may have been fatally injured at another location before being transported and left in Subang Jaya.
The case has been classified under Sect 41(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987 for causing death by reckless or dangerous driving.
This act carries a punishment of a jail term of not less than two years and not more than ten years and to a fine not less than RM5,000 and not more than RM20,000.
The police urge eyewitnesses or anyone who has additional information of the incident to contact the police at 03-56210343 or directly to Investigation Officer Insp Abdul Naseer Peping at 012-286 3875.
