SHAH ALAM: Police are looking for nine more witnesses in connection with the investigation into the death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed said the nine men were bystanders on the night that Adib got hurt.

"We are looking for them as it is pertinent to our investigations.

"We have recorded the statements of 31 people so far," he told a press conference at the Selangor police headquarters on Monday (Dec 16).

The police CSI team will also construct a 3D rendition of the incident during the course of the investigations, he added.

"We will also be calling in medical experts.

"We also seek experts' reports regarding Adib's post-mortem from the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC). We are waiting for MMC's reply," Comm Huzir said.

The Coroner's Court had ruled that Muhammad Adib's death was caused by two or more persons unknown.

Coroner judge Rofiah Mohamad read her judgment after 41 days of inquest proceeding.

"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.
