Vijay said the suspect later ran into a silver-coloured Perodua Myvi.

"I rushed to check on my brother, but he was already dead. Four others were injured.

"I carried my brother to the car while the rest were taken to HKL in an ambulance," he said.

Meanwhile, one of the victims' relatives who was only identified as Giva, said one of the injured victims, Murugan, worked as a personal driver and had five children.

"As soon as I received a call from his children, I rushed to HKL. As far as I know, he has no enemies," he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Bentong rescue personnel, searching for a missing 15-year-old boy, made a gruesome discovery of a headless, half-decomposed body near Jalan Karak-Manchis, Saturday evening.

Ng, who hails from Taman Melawati here, was on a trip with 11 other friends to the waterfall on Monday.
