KUALA LUMPUR: Three hacked bodies were found in a Christian cemetery at Jalan Kuari in Cheras here. 

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said the cemetery’s caretaker alerted authorities of the grisly find at around 1pm, Sunday.  

“Initial investigations revealed that the fully clothed bodies, covered in slash wounds, were found sprawled on the ground. 

“The bodies of the men were positioned some 30m away from each other,” he added.  

SAC Zainuddin said no identification documents were found on them. 

“There were no BCG marks on all three bodies, leading us to believe that they were foreigners. 

“We believe that they were Myanmar nationals, but we are still at the initial phase of investigations,” he said.  

According to SAC Zainuddin, statements recorded from a witness revealed that a group comprising seven to eight men had gathered at the area to drink alcohol at about 9pm, Saturday.  

“We believe that the men were fighting among themselves under the influence of alcohol. 

“There were beer cans scattered at the scene. We also found candles which may have been used to light up the area. 

“The group may have been from a nearby Myanmar settlement located about 1km from the cemetery,” he said. 

SAC Zainuddin added that a special task force has been set up to track down the suspects behind the cold-blooded murder.  

No weapons were recovered from the scene and the motive of the crime is still being probed.  

The case has been classified as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
