KUALA LUMPUR: Police have rearrested the two private investigators who allegedly intimidated Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu before she was abducted and murdered. 

It was learnt that the two men, aged 46 and 35, were rearrested on Wednesday night to assist police in their ongoing investigations into Altantuya’s murder.

CID director Comm Datuk Christopher Wan confirmed the arrests but declined to comment further. 

Yesterday, political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda was charged with abetting two policemen – C/Insp Azilah Hadri and Kpl Sirul Azhar Umar – to commit the crime. 

The two private investigators were first arrested on Thursday following a police report lodged against them. 

They were released on Saturday after police recorded their statements. 

Meanwhile, Dr Shaariibuu Setev still cannot believe that his daughter is dead. 

Honorary Mongolian Consul General in Malaysia Datuk Syed Abdul Rahman Alhabshi said Dr Shaariibuu was “very, very disturbed and hurt” over the incident. 

“He just cannot understand and accept the fact that his daughter was murdered in such a gruesome manner,” he said, adding that they were informed yesterday morning about the DNA results which had confirmed that the bone fragments found scattered on a hilltop in Shah Alam belonged to Altantuya. 

Syed Abdul Rahman also said the family would be holding prayers for Altantuya before leaving for Mongolia. 

He said the father hoped to get permission from the Attorney-General before leaving for home.
