SEREMBAN: Police here are investigating a Selangor businessman who is alleged to have extorted nearly RM1mil from a Bahau businessman after a business deal fell through.
It is learnt that the Bahau businessman, 51, had lodged two police reports late last month.
In his report, the businessman said he was abducted in front of a restaurant here before being taken to a building in Banting, Selangor.
He alleged that several thugs then stripped him naked before taking his pictures and forced him to sign a letter stating that he owed RM958,000.
He claimed he was assaulted by the thugs and was warned against lodging a police report or his family would be in trouble. The businessman relented and paid RM750,000 in several instalments, according to the report.
State CID chief Asst Comm Mohmad Salleh confirmed that a report was lodged.
Sources said the businessman decided to lodge a police report recently when the Selangor businessmans partner, who was a prominent figure, was killed.
