15 people, including seven cops arrested for kidnapping Iranian


KUALA LUMPUR - Fifteen people - including seven policemen - have been arrested for kidnapping an Iranian businessman from the oil and gas industry.

The businessman, who is a Datuk, was abducted around 6pm on November 23 at Jalan Ampang Hilir.

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic) said the kidnappers had tried to sneak the businessman out of the country.

"However they were unsuccessful," he said during a press conference at Bukit Aman yesterday.

City deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Law Hong Soon said the kidnappers then brought the man to Malacca to evade capture.

"Fortunately the man was released two days later safely," he said when contacted.

Following his release, the police nabbed 15 people including seven policemen.

The 15 were aged from 26 to 55.

Asked about the policemen, Law said they are attached to Kuala Lumpur and Bukit Aman.

He declined to confirm the rank of the seven, but it is believed that most of them were rank and file policemen.

DCP Law said that there was no ransom demand and the motive is believed to be debt-related.

"The case is being investigated under Section 363 of the Penal Code for kidnapping and they have been remanded until December 3," he said.
