PETALING JAYA: A fugitive who has been on the run for alleged rape, abduction and robbery after staging accidents, was nabbed in the most unlikely of all places – in the Batu Gajah police station where he had gone to lodge a report after being involved in an accident. 

Policemen there arrested the man, nicknamed Ikan, when the computer system flashed “wanted” when they keyed in his name and identity card number to file in his accident report. 

It was learnt that the officers immediately contacted the police here who confirmed that he was on their wanted list. 

Sources said the man was arrested and held in the cell there. He is expected to be brought back here.  

The fugitive is alleged to have been involved in 10 rape and robbery cases. 

State CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Abu Bakar Mustaffa had several months ago said an all points bulletin had been put out for the fugitive and his accomplice. 

He said they would ram into their victim’s car and when their victim stopped, they would apologise, claiming that their car brakes had failed. 

They would then rob the victim and push her aside before driving off in both cars. 

The duo is also suspected to be involved in the kidnapping of a businessman’s three daughters on Dec 22 after a staged accident.  

The duo had knocked into a car driven by the businessman’s wife near Sungai Buloh, and hijacked her car.  

However, they did not notice that the woman’s children, aged three, five, and seven, in the rear seat. They held the girls and released them after a RM10,000 ransom was paid by their father.
