IPOH: Big questions remain over the burnt car that was found in an oil palm plantation in Hutan Melintang 11 days ago before the discovery of the body of Deputy Public Prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais.

Hilir Perak OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain said the chemist’s report from analysis of the car had yet to be made available.

“I have been chasing it (the Che­m­istry Department) for the report since last week but public interest cases do take time.

“The department does not want to make any mistake. It has to be really careful in its work,” he said.

The burnt car, found on Sept 5 in Kampung Sungai Samak, is said to be a Proton Perdana similar to the one that Morais used.

Because the car in Hutan Melintang was totally burnt, it has been difficult to ascertain the model and its owner as the chassis and registration numbers could not be traced.

ACP Shuhaily said should the vehicle be confirmed to belong to Morais, police would investigate why Kampung Sungai Samak was chosen as the location to burn the car.

“Since there are suspects arrested and a body found, the car becomes secondary,” he added.
