Skeletal remains found on university grounds

SEPANG: Skeletal remains believed to be that of a woman were found at Universiti Tenaga Nasional in Sepang early yesterday.

Sepang district police chief ACP Abdul Aziz Ali said the remains were found by a surveyor who was carrying out survey work at the university area together with his colleague.

“The complainant saw a slipper, clothes and a pillow at one of the check points and, as he approached it, he found some large bones wrapped in a bed cover believed to be human bones,” he told the media when contacted last night.

Abdul Aziz said the skeletal remains were found in an abandoned rubber plantation in the university area, about 1km from the rugby field and 30m from the power substation.

Although there were no identification documents on the remains, a ring, bracelet, jacket, belt and underwear were found.

“The victim is believed to be a woman, and it is likely that the victim’s body was left in the area about a year ago before being found,” he said.

Those with information regarding the case are urged to contact investigating officer ASP Wan Azirul at the Sepang district police headquarters (03-8777 4222) or to visit any nearby police station.

The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
