PETALING JAYA: The charred body of a man was found in a burnt Perodua Myvi car owned by a VIP, in an open space on a hillock in Bukit Damansara, here.

From police investigation on the car chassis number, it was found that the car owner is a Tan Sri living in a housing area nearby and the car is believed to be used by his son.
