IPOH: A 47-year-old man claimed that he was “abducted and detained” by three men who had invested in a sandmining project that never took off.
Mohd Nasaruddin Mukhtar said he had wanted to operate a sand-mining business but did not have enough capital.
He said he managed to secure three other investors for the project last December.
He claimed that the investors had paid an advance payment of RM100,000 to a sand-mining company in Bandar Ipoh Raya, which apparently owned a piece of land near Kampung Terengganu in Teluk Intan.
“However, the company director disappeared with the money and until today, the permit that was promised to us for the extraction and removal of sand in Kampung Terengganu was not granted.
“The funders are taking out their anger on me even though I did not have anything to do with the swindling of their money,” said Mohd Nasaruddin at a press conference yesterday.
He claimed that the investors had come over to his house around 9am on April 22 and forced him to follow them and later detained him in a hotel at Station 18 near here.
“Two days later, I was brought to an oil factory in Shah Alam where they bashed me and even threatened to slice me up. They locked me in a room for three days and I overheard them talking about ferrying me to Johor on the third day,” claimed Mohd Nasaruddin.
Fortunately, he managed to escape from the hotel and ran to the nearest police station.
