KUALA LUMPUR: Witnesses have been urged to come forward with any new information in connection with the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

Bukit Aman CID D5 principal assistant director Senior Asst Comm Mior Faridalatrash Wahid said police are always ready to record statements of witnesses to assist the ongoing murder investigation.

"We hope those with new information on the case can come forward and we will record their statements.

"We will also recall past witnesses if there is a need to do so," he told a press conference in Bukit Aman on Monday.

Asked whether those who were previously detained in connection with the case will be called up again, SAC Mior said police will see the need for investigations.

"We are investigating under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

"We are also waiting for further instructions from the Attorney General's Chambers," he said.

Police investigations into Adib's death have never stopped, he added.

"We will track down those responsible for his death," he said.

On Friday (Sept 27), the Coroner's Court ruled that Muhammad Adib's death was caused by two or more persons unknown,

Coroner judge Rofiah Mohamad read her judgement after 41 days of inquest proceedings.

"The blunt chest trauma (on Adib) is not caused by himself (perbuatan sendiri) or (an) accident but a criminal act by two or more persons unknown," said the coroner.

The verdicts that could have been reached by the Coroner's Court were an open verdict, a verdict of misadventure, or death by person or persons unknown.
