A snapshot of the CCTV footage from Rayer's house showing the suspect arriving on his motorcycle before dumping the cow head.
GEORGETOWN: Police have recorded a statement from DAP's Seri Delima assemblyman R.S.N Rayer over the severed cow-head found in front of his house in Tingkat Tembaga here early Saturday.
Rayer also handed over CCTV footage of the incident to police officers who came to his house to record his statement.
A review of the CCTV footage showed a man arriving in front of Rayer's house on a motorcycle, dumping the cow head and dancing in front of the CCTV camera before fleeing.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, who arrived at Rayer's house, claimed it was a tactic used by those who supported Umno.
"Let me be clear that I'm not blaming Umno for this but what we have seen is that this was also done by pro-Umno forces in Selangor back in 2009.
"We do not know whether this is the same group of people, using a cow head to hit out at Rayer.
"DAP condemns this barbaric and uncivilised act," he said.
It is learnt that Rayer's wife discovered the severed head around 7am.
Rayer posted a photograph on his Facebook page around 8am and wrote: "This morning I found a cow head at the front gate of my house ......"
Rayer is a Hindu. Cows are considered sacred and holy for the Hindus.
The assemblyman was at the centre of a controversy recently when he labelled Umno "celaka" during the state assembly sitting on May 20.
