Three men and a woman, were arrested by police, believed to be involved in the kidnapping of a Dutch boy, Nayati Shamelin Moodliar on April 27.

According to police sources, the suspects, aged between 30 to 50 were detained in separate operations in Perak and Cheras, Selangor since Sunday to early Tuesday morning.

“Police recovered more than RM100,000 which was part of the ransom paid by Nayati’s father (Sham Moodliar) and mother (Janice Smith),” said the source.

Bukit Aman together with Kuala Lumpur police made the arrests and seized equipment such as laptops and mobile phones believed to be used by the suspects to negotiate with Nayati’s parents for ransom.

The source said police were waiting for the return of Nayati’s family from their holiday so that their 12-year-old son would help police in identifying the suspects. – (Source:Bernama)
