SEPANG: A police diving team was dispatched to help retrieve the mobile phone of a lecturer believed to have been strangled to death by her husband.
Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Wan Kamarul Azran Yusof said the divers were at the lake at Taman Putra Perdana at around 11am on Tuesday.
“They were called in to help find the mobile phone which was discarded here.
“They were however unsuccessful, ” he said when contacted yesterday.
ACP Wan Kamarul added that they would not continue searching for the phone due to the difficult conditions of the lake.
“The divers spent about two hours combing a 10m radius from the shore in waters of about 4m deep, ” he said.
Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin earlier said they had established the motive for the case but declined to elaborate as it may jeopardise investigations.
“The case is still being investigated and part of the process is to collect all necessary evidence.
“We will not stop until we have collected enough evidence to take action against the suspect, ” he told reporters after witnessing the handing over of duties ceremony for the KLIA OCPD here yesterday.
It was reported that a 41-year-old man, who allegedly flipped when his wife pressed for divorce, is believed to have strangled her to death and later made it appear like she was a victim of a robbery-cum-murder.
The NGO volunteer is suspected to have choked his wife, a lecturer, with her headscarf in a fit of rage before taking the lifeless body to a lake near Pinggiran Cyberjaya.
At the lake, he allegedly moved her body onto the driver’s seat of the Perodua MyVi.
Subsequently, he called for an e-hailing ride and went together with their 14-year-old daughter purportedly to search for her.
He was arrested after police investigations revealed that the suspect had a troubled marriage.
The suspect reportedly also led police to an area near the Putra Perdana Mosque where he had dumped her valuables.
The woman’s mobile phone was smashed by the suspect with a rock before he threw it into another lake at Taman Putra Perdana.
