BACHOK: Four bodies of suspected murder victims were found in some bushes in Kampung Tanjung Hilir in Bekelam here yesterday afternoon.

Kelantan police chief Abdul Rahman Ismail said the three men and a woman were believed to have been killed elsewhere and then dumped in the bushes.

The four victims, believed to be in their 20s and 30s, are suspected to have died at least three days ago, he told reporters at the scene here last night.

Abdul Rahman said based on initial investigation of the bodies whose heads were wrapped in plastic, the victims were stabbed in their chests and stomachs.

“There were also scratches on the thighs and arms which could be a result from fights before the murder,” he said.

Abdul Rahman said one of the victims also has a tattoo on his right hand.

Police were conducting investigations at the scene together with the forensic team and medical officer from Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital (HRPZII) Kota Bharu.

The case was classified as murder and is being investigated Under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
