KUALA LUMPUR: More body parts of murder victim A. Kalidash were recovered near a sewage pond in Pandan Jaya here. 

The highly decomposed body parts, including two legs, were found stuck in a rubbish trap of the pond, several kilometres from the bushes where the victim's charred head and two arms were found. 

Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Noor Masdar said police believed Kalidash's murderers chopped him into seven pieces, using sharp weapons like axes or parang, after killing him on Monday night.  

Police say his penis is still missing. 

Led by one of the six suspects who were detained, a police team went to an opening of a canal leading to the sewage pond near a squatter area in Jalan Pandan, to search for Kalidash's remaining body parts at 2pm yesterday. 

The team, with help from the Fire and Rescue Department, searched over 100m of the canal before finding the two legs and the gunny sack containing the body parts two hours later. 

“We will send the body parts to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia for post-mortem,” ACP Mohd Noor said. 

He said police recovered a parang, believed to be one of the murder weapons, at the suspect's scrap metal shop nearby. 

“The assailants had chopped the victim into pieces at his workshop before dumping his body into the canal. 

“Investigations showed that the group had also thrown the victim's torched head and arms in Jalan Mengkudu, off Jalan Ampang Hilir.” 

Kalidash, 27, from South India, was last seen with his bride's uncle and his friends last Monday. 

Police detained six people including his wife and her uncle.  

The suspects, aged between 20 and 45, have been remanded until Friday to help in investigations. 

Initial investigations revealed the “secret” marriage between Kalidash and his former employer's daughter last month was the cause of the brutal murder.
