Two more sought for help in DPP's murder probe

KUALA LUMPUR - Police are looking for two more people to assist in the murder investigation of Deputy Public Prosecutor Anthony Kevin Morais.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad said the first person of interest is Vishwanath a/l Murugaya, 25, whose last known address is at Taman Desa Karangan, Sungai Karangan in Kedah, and the second is Dinishwaran a/l Raman, 23, whose last known address is Batu Pekaka Estate in Kedah.

He urged those with information on the men's whereabouts to contact any police station or call the Sentul district police headquarters at 03-4048-2222 or investigating officer Asst Supt Wan Abdullah Wan Said at 012-348-2737.

The DNA test performed on the body found in a cemented oil drum on Sept 16 in Subang Jaya matched that of Morais.

Police were led to the location of the oil drum by a suspect who was among seven people remanded in the case, including an army doctor who was charged with engaging in unlawful trade while being a government servant.

The doctor has several corruption cases pending against him. Three DPPs, including Morais, had been involved in prosecuting the cases involving the doctor since 2013.

Morais went missing on Sept 4 after leaving his residence in Menara Duta here for work in Putrajaya in a grey Proton Perdana bearing registration plate WA6264Q.

Police are also urging anyone with information on an incident in Jalan Duta Mas near here at about 7.51am that day to come forward by contacting the nearest station or the police hotline at 03-2115-9999.
