IPOH: The burnt body of a man was found lying prone near a jungle 200 metres from the main road to the Swiss Garden Resort near Lumut on Friday.

Manjung District Police chief ACP Tengku Mohd Zailan Tengku Ahmad Shah said the body was found by people who were going into the jungle to trap wild fowls at 4.30pm.

"About 70 per cent of the body, which was crawling with maggots, was burned.

The victim could have been dead for four or five days," he said in a media statement on Saturday.

He said the identity of the corpse had yet to be ascertained. - Bernama
