A grisly find at Syed Alwi Road at the Jalan Besar area. A dismembered body was found stuffed in a suitcase.
A fruit stall owner told Channel NewsAsia that past 5pm on Wednesday (June 11), an old man asked two tourists for help in pushing a trolley with a suitcase. When they touched the bag, their hands were stained with blood. It prompted them to ask the shopowner owner for permission to wash their hands on his premises. A "karang guni" man, who collects old and discarded items to sell, reportedly found a body in the suitcase when he opened it.
Several policemen were seen at the scene this evening. Police said they received a call for assistance at 6:04 pm, and that an upper body without both legs was found in a piece of luggage.
Police have classified the case as unnatural death and an investigation is underway.
Channel NewsAsia understands the victim is believed to be male.
