KUALA LUMPUR: Post-mortem results revealed that the three men who were found floating in an old mining pool near the Batu Caves roundabout had drowned.
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said police had yet to determine how this happened, adding that they did not suffer injuries.
The three were Raja Salvem Rajoo, 38, Mohd Nordin Nor, 38, and Mohd Fairuse Yusop, 30.
“We have sent their blood samples to the Chemistry Department,” ACP Zakaria said at the Sentul police headquarters yesterday.
The authorities were alerted by the public to the bodies floating in the lake near the Sri Siva Muneeswarar temple at about 5.30pm on Saturday.
Two bodies were recovered at 6.15pm while the third was fished out at 8pm.
ACP Zakaria said an anti-narcotics operation was being carried out in the same area on Saturday morning but they could not establish if the men were evading arrest by jumping into the mining pool.
“We conducted the operation between 9am and 12.30pm on Saturday, and arrested 13 drug addicts,”
“We interrogated the addicts but none of them could confirm if the trio were part of the group who were getting their fix in the area,” he said.
ACP Zakaria said the case had been classified as sudden death, but police would still investigate all angles.
