KUALA LUMPUR: A Grab driver, believed to have been strangled, was found upside down in the back seat of his Perodua Myvi car at a car park in Taman Selayang Makmur here last night.

The deputy chief of Gombak police, Supt Tey Kong Seng, said the victim, Aiman Nosri, 27, of Nilai, Seremban, was found about 8.20pm in a bizarre inverted position, with his head on the floor and his legs upright.

“Police checks found lacerations on the neck of the victim but no weapons were found at the scene,” he said in a statement here today. There were strangulation marks on the victim’s neck.

Tey said two mobile phones, a pair of shoes and socks, a pair of slippers and a shirt were found in the car.

The victim was believed to have last ferried passengers from Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock to Selayang Baru at 9.34pm on Thursday.

Grab, the ride-hailing company, said the victim was a hard-working and top-performing driver who was well appreciated by his passengers based on their feedback.
