The victim, a 25-year-old Pakistani, was identified by his ex-wife, a 31-year-old Malaysian woman.

Brickfields district police chief, Assistant Commissioner Anuar Omar, said the woman came to the police headquarters at 4.30pm yesterday and identified the man based on the clothes worn.

He said she was accompanied by a Pakistani man, who claimed to be a friend of the deceased.

“The woman said she was divorced from the victim since last October after three years of marriage,” he said.

Anuar said while the initial identification was done based on photographs and clothing, a physical identification would still be done at the University Malaya Medical Centre’s Forensic Pathology Department.

“The victim used to run a perfume business with his ex-wife, but became unemployed after the divorce.

“A check with the Immigration Department showed that the victim’s passport is valid until next February,” he said.

He said police are still investigating the motive for his killing.

Members of the public found the body in the middle of Jalan Bangsar around 5.30am. Investigators believe that the body may have been dumped out of a vehicle.

The case’s brutal nature also captured public attention after it was discovered that the man’s throat had been slit, with slash wounds on his chest as well as genitals. – NST
