BUKIT MERTAJAM, Malaysia - Police are looking for four men to help in investigations into the murder of businessman Datuk Seri Law Yeong Chow.

They are Ong Teik Beng, 26, Tay King Ngee, 34, Lim Sin Tian, 20, and Ewe Wai Beng, 19.

OCPD Asst Comm Rusli Mohd Noor said the men might have links to Gang 24.

He urged those who know their whereabouts to contact the Rakan COP hotline (04-2691999) or any police station.

"We made progress after 26 people, aged between 19 and 50, were recently arrested in Bukit Tengah, Bayan Lepas and Kuala Lumpur in connection with the case," he told reporters yesterday.

ACP Rusli said police also seized RM214,059 (S$80,000) in cash, six luxury cars, 31 gold wafers worth RM186,000, jewellery, handphones and laptop computers from the suspects who might be involved in money-lending activities.

On Jan 13, Law was reported missing in Juru. He was last seen coming out of a foot reflexology centre in Bukit Mertajam when several people pulled up in two cars and bundled him into one of the vehicles.

A police probe revealed that the two cars, bearing fake registration number plates, exited the North-South Expressway at the Changkat Jering toll plaza in Taiping.

His badly burnt body was found in Lumut three days later.
