Sixth suspect in Nayati kidnapping arrested
KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — Police have recovered more of the ransom paid for the release of Nayati Shamelin Moodliar, 12, following the arrest of another suspect in the kidnapping of the Dutch schoolboy.
The suspect was arrested in Banting yesterday, said city CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah.
The suspect had gone into hiding following the earlier arrest of five other suspects in the kidnapping late last month.
According to a report in Berita Harian Online today, police are confident of arresting the seventh suspect, who is believed to have fled overseas.
Besides seeking the assistance of Interpol to track this suspect, police here believe the man may return to the country under an assumed identity to escape detection.
Four men and a woman had earlier been arrested for their part in the kidnapping and part of the ransom, believed to be RM300,000, recovered from them.
Nayati was bundled into a car by two unidentified men while he was walking to his school here on April 27.
He was released unharmed on May 3 after his parents had paid a ransom.
