KUALA LUMPUR: Police are trying to find out if there was foul play in the death of a man, whose body was found in the middle of Jalan Bangsar on Thursday morning.
Post-mortem results did not rule out the possibility the victim was murdered or hit by a heavy vehicle.
Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said initial investigations revealed there were injuries on the victim’s body, believed to be from a blunt object.
“For now, we can’t ascertain whether the victim was murdered as there is a possibility that he could be a road accident victim.
“Our findings are based on the post-mortem conducted, ” he said.
ACP Anuar also said the victim is believed to be a foreigner as there was no BCG vaccination mark on his arms.
“But we have not ascertained his actual identity as there was no identification documents found on him, ” he added.
He urged those with information on the incident as well as the identity of the victim to come forward.
“Those who are missing a family member or a friend should contact the police as soon as possible as well, ” he added.
ACP Anuar also called on the public to stop spreading photos of a man lying on the road with visible injuries to his neck and private parts.
“Those who are spreading wrong information on social media should stop. Delete such photos if you receive them.
“Spreading such false information could disrupt the investigation. We will take necessary action against the perpetrators, ” he said.
The victim, in his 30s, was found at 5.38am.
