SHAH ALAM: Two girls were rescued by a special CID task force 10 hours after being abducted by two men in Klang.
They were found unhurt at a hotel in Jalan Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.
Police detained a 21-year-old Myanmar national who allegedly abducted the girls, aged 12 and 14, near their home in Taman Klang Jaya.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Mohd Adnan Abdullah said the girls were abducted at about 9pm on Friday.
He said several witnesses saw the girls being abducted by two men in a car.
Police managed to track down one of the kidnappers near a shopping mall at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock in the city at about 7.30pm the next day.
“We detained the Myanmar national and he led us to the girls who were in a budget hotel some 2km away.
“They have not been harmed but are mentally traumatised,” he said, adding that both of them have been sent to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah in Klang.
SAC Mohd Adnan said at a press conference that police discovered the Myanmar national was a colleague of the victims' mother who worked at a factory near their house.
“The abductors did not get a chance to ask for any ransom ... we are investigating the motive.
“We are still trying to identify the suspect's local accomplice,” he said, adding that the Myanmar national has been remanded until Jan 26.
