SUBANG JAYA: The body of deputy public prosecutor Kevin Morais (pic) has been found.

Following the arrest of seven suspects, one of them led police to a swamp along Jalan Subang 3 here where they are alleged to have dumped an oil drum containing his body filled with cement.

Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh said they were led to the scene at around 6am on Wednesday.

"The oil drum was found in the swamp after divers went in to confirm it.

"A forklift was called to hoist the oil drum out so that work could be carried out to remove the body from it," he told reporters at the scene on Friday.

He said following the arrests of seven including a woman and a child, police got crucial information which led to the discovery.

"Initially CCTV footage showed that Morais' car was trailed by a Mitsubishi Triton who rammed into his government issued Proton Perdana.

"He was abducted after the collision and a suspect drove Morais’s car off while he was taken in the Mitsubishi Triton," he said adding that the body has been sent to Hospital Kuala Lumpur for post mortem.

Comm Mohmad said one of the suspects, a 52-year-old armed forces medical officer, was involved in a corruption case that was prosecuted by Morais in Shah Alam recently.

"We believe the other suspects were contracted by this suspect to kidnap him.

"The suspects have been remanded for 14 days to help investigations," he said adding that the woman and child are the wife and child of one of the suspects.
