KOTA SAMARAHAN: A body, believed to be that of a missing student, was found in a large drain in Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas).
The body was found by Unimas staff around 5pm Tuesday and police were immediately informed.
The identity of the body could not be confirmed, but Kota Samarahan police chief DSP Lee Chong Chern said it could be that of student Siti Najwa Atikah Azhar, 19, from Pulau Pinang, who was reported missing on Jan 13.
