SA boy's kidnapping in Malaysia: 4 held

2012-05-08 20:45
Cape Town - Malaysian police have arrested three men and a woman over the recent abduction of 12-year-old Nayati Shamelin Moodliar, the son of a South African couple, according to Malaysia's national news agency Bernama.

The suspects were arrested in separate police operations in Perak and Selangor since Sunday, Bernama said.

"The police have recovered more than RM100 000 [Malaysian Ringgit, nearly R260 000] which is part of the ransom money paid by Nayati’s father and mother," a source told Bernama.

A special team from Bukit Aman, the headquarters of the Malaysian police, also seized a laptop computer and a mobile phone that was used to communicate the kidnappers' ransom demands for the Dutch-born boy.

The source told Bernama that the police would now wait for Nayati and his family to return from an overseas holiday to identify the suspected kidnappers.

Nayati was abducted in front of Mont Kiara International School two weeks ago.

He was released last Thursday in Rawang after the family paid a ransom. The ransom amount was unknown.
