KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 (Bernama) – Two of the three men who were believed to be involved in killing a cat by putting the animal in a clothes drying machine at a dhoby shop were detained at two separate locations in Gombak early this morning.
Gombak OCPD ACP Samsor Maarof said the two men, aged 26 and 40, were detained as a result of intelligence and public information received.
“However, another man who is still at large, is being tracked by the police,”he said when contacted by Bernama today.
He added that the two men were being remanded for four days beginning today.
Yesterday, Samsor was reported as saying that police were tracking down three men, believed to be locals to solve the case under Section 428 of the Penal Code with regard to killing the animal.
A close circuit TV (CCTV) recording lasting two minutes and 50 seconds at a dhoby shop in Taman Gombak Ria which was viraled on Tuesday showed two men putting a pregnant cat into the clothes drying machine at about 12 midnight before the dead cat that was covered with blood was found in the machine.
Police, however, confirmed that there was a third individual in the CCTV recording.
