Kuala Lumpur

A 34-year-old Indonesian maid from Medan was found dead with head injuries in a residence of former Public Works Department director Datuk Amir Hamzah in Taman Tun Dr Ismail yesterday at 7pm.

Fitri was found on the floor of the living room by Amir’s son when he returned home. Serious injuries were inflicted on the head by a hard and blunt object. The house was ransacked and there were signs of forced entry into the master bedroom where the door was locked. There were no signs of house break-in, suggesting that the assailant may have been known to the victim.

Police have yet to find Fitri’s jewellery, which were missing.

The victim’s body was sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a post-mortem, and police have classified the case as robbery-cum-murder.
