ROMPIN: Police detained six men, including a 14-year-old boy, for digging up an orang asli grave here, purportedly for treatment purposes, without authorisation.
Rompin OCPD Deputy Supt Johari Jahaya said police, who were informed of the incident in Kampung Deraman, Batu 3, Kuala Rompin by villagers, succeeded in nabbing those involved at 9.30pm on Saturday.
“Six suspects, aged between 14 and 43, were detained with the help of villagers.
“Preliminary investigations revealed that one of the suspects is on the wanted list, and another has a criminal record,” he told reporters yesterday.
He said the suspects confessed that they had dug up the grave to find a bone for medical purposes. — Bernama
