KUALA LUMPUR: Investigations have led the police to believe that an issue involving money led to the kidnapping and eventual death of a Datuk Seri.

"Based on our investigations, the motive was linked to money. It is not clear if there are any links to borrowing or debts. We are still investigating," said Federal CID director Comm Datuk Huzir Mohamed (pic) in a press conference at Bukit Aman Tuesday (June 30).

On Saturday (June 30), the victim's body was discovered in the bushes of Jalan Rawang Bestari Jaya at about 9am.

He was kidnapped while jogging in Bandar Sri Damansara on June 10.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat had previously said a ransom had been demanded from the victim's family.

"However, the ransom has not been paid," he said.

"One of the suspects led police to the victim's body in Jalan Rawang Bestari Jaya at 9am on Saturday.

"The suspects also claimed that the victim died between three and four days after he was kidnapped," SAC Fadzil had said.

He added that the victim's body had already started to decompose when it was found.
