KUALA LUMPUR: The special CID task force investigating the abduction of DPP Anthony Kevin Morais came upon a major lead early Wednesday.
It is learnt an oil drum said to contain a body was found in USJ 1 in Subang Jaya. Fire and Rescue Department staff are now trying to cut open the drum.
Sources revealed that the task force has been probing the area since 6am Wednesday.
City police chief Comm Datuk Tajuddin Md Isa has rushed to the scene.
It is learnt that Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh will be issuing a statement on the matter soon.
Morais went missing after leaving his residence in Menara Duta, here, on Sept 4 for work in Putrajaya in a grey Proton Perdana bearing the registration plate WA6264Q.
It was reported that at least four suspects followed him in another car through heavy traffic while he was on his way to work before nabbing him in Bangsar.
The suspects reportedly approached Kevin in his car and forced him out before dragging him into their vehicle. This apparently happened in full view of other motorists in the morning rush hour.
One suspect drove Morais’ car off with the abductor’s vehicle.
