PETALING JAYA: Six men, including a Datuk, are expected to be charged with the kidnapping of a businessman with the title Datuk Seri.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said the six men will be charged at the Petaling Jaya Magistrate's Court later Thursday (July 9).
"The Attorney General's Chambers have instructed for the suspects to be prosecuted under Section 3 of the Kidnapping Act 1961, read together with Section 34 of the Penal Code.
"The suspects include the Datuk and a Bangladeshi man," he said when contacted Thursday.
A total of 11 men have been detained in connection with the fatal kidnapping of the Datuk Seri.
On 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.
The victim's body was already decomposing when it was discovered.
SAC Fadzil had previously said the victim knew one of the suspects - the Datuk - from past meetings.
"We are not ruling out the possibility that business rivalry or past debts and dealings as the motive behind the kidnapping," he had said.
