WANG KELIAN — June 7, 2015: The skeletal remains of 99 victims of human trafficking syndicates have been found and brought out from the graves found in the jungles here so far.
As of 5.25 pm today, another 30 skeletons were found in 31 graves and taken out from Bukit Genting Perah via Felcra Lubuk Sireh .
Perlis police chief SAC Shafie Ismail, when contacted, confirmed that the remains of 30 victims were taken out from the Bukit Genting Perah site but could not provide further details.
“I was informed that there was heavy rain about 3.20 pm and that made the task difficult because the paths along the hills were slippery,” he said.
According to Shafie, no remains were found in one of the graves.
“If there are no obstacles, all the remaining graves will be exhumed tomorrow,” he said, adding that there were still about 20 to be dug up.
Yesterday, 20 human skeletons which had been shrouded were found and brought out and prior to that 35 skeletons were brought out from Bukit Wang Burma near here. — Bernama
