Police said this evening that the scattered bones and skull of a child, suspected to be of one of the missing seven Orang Asli children, were found by a river 1.3km from Post Tohoi, near Gua Musang in Kelantan.
State police chief Datuk Mazlan Lazim told The Malaysian Insider that search and rescue personnel found the skeletal remains at 5.30pm after hours of searching along the Sungai Perias river.
“The General Operation Force found the skull of a child and skeletal remains. It belonged to a child as the remains and the skull all fit together.
“We sent the remains to Gua Musang Hospital for post mortem,” Mazlan said in a text message.
This is the second remains found suspected to be of one the seven Orang Asli children who went missing six weeks ago. The decomposed body of the first victim, 8-year-old Sasa Sobrie, was found some 24 hours ago in the same river. Read more
