MALAYSIA: On Sunday (3 Dec), a distressing discovery was made in Kampung Pendamar, Klang—a body, believed to be that of a woman, was found entombed in cement within the confines of a rented house.

According to reports from the Malaysian daily news outlet, Harian Metro, the residence had previously been occupied by two foreign men. In October, these occupants had informed the 66-year-old homeowner of their intention to vacate the premises.

Upon their departure, the homeowner decided to inspect the property before welcoming new tenants.

During the inspection, the elderly male homeowner noticed additional cement in his bathroom, so he inquired with the former tenants about it but initially received no response.

However, shortly thereafter, the former tenants notified him that supposedly water from a rat carcass was flowing into the bathroom drain, requiring the application of additional cement.

The homeowner didn’t suspect anything then and proceeded to hire foreign workers to repair his home before renting it out to someone else.

It was during the repair process that the victim’s body was discovered in the cement, prompting the homeowner to report the incident to the local authorities.

Upon being notified, law enforcement promptly sought the assistance of the fire department to facilitate the extraction of the body from the cemented enclosure.

The Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM) team in Selangor spent over two hours breaking a cemented tank after receiving a call at approximately 11:39 p.m. to extract a body that had been cemented in a bathroom, as stated by JBPM in an official statement.

Arrest made, two suspects sought in connection to the cement-encased body case

In the wake of the grim discovery of a woman’s body entombed in cement, law enforcement has apprehended one foreign man and is actively pursuing two others believed to be connected to the incident.

Selangor Police Chief, Datuk Hussein Omar Khan, revealed that the detained individual is a 53-year-old man.

A request for remand was presented at the Klang Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday (5 Dec).

“The police have also identified two foreign male suspects who rented the house and are believed to be involved in the case.”

“The police are currently in the process of tracking down both suspects known as Ranjit Singh and Mandeep Singh,” he said in a statement on 4 Dec.

The homeowner had leased the property to these two individuals for a duration of two years, from August 2019 until October 2021.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted under Section 302 of the Penal Code, indicating suspicions that the woman may have been murdered nearly a year prior.

Efforts to establish the identity of the deceased woman are underway, with an autopsy scheduled for Wednesday at Shah Alam Hospital.

As part of the continuing investigation, statements from three individuals, including the homeowner, have been recorded.
