SA boy's kidnapping in Malaysia: 4 held

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.

    If they are found guilty beyond all reasonable doubt hang them. May the judicial process be quick. It is inexcusable what they did.

    We need their police to come over here and teach our cops a thing or 10.

      @Sadiemy Don't hold you breath, our top cops are corruption junkies - where's Jackie? What's going on with Cele? Who is being cowarded by Mdluli? Need more?

      In all honesty, over her the four would probably have been policemen. Sorry, but that is the sort of thinking our current situation evokes.

    I must say the policemen in my country did a good job, but I'm sure they had some help, as well. I'm glad Nayati is back home with his family. While I do miss my family and friends back home in Malaysia, I am also enjoying myself living in Cape Town :)
