A cosmetic sales agent was abducted by a group of men at her home in Kampung Semat Jal, Wakaf Bharu, Kelantan on Tuesday, 13 September

Rosnazirah Mohd Naim, 36, was said to be snatched by three men who were driving a Toyota Vios at 4.10pm, reported Harian Metro.

According to a family member of the victim, one of the suspects knocked on the front door and greeted her. The victim then opened the door and was asked if her name was Azi.

After confirming her identity, the man grabbed the victim and dragged her to a car that was parked in front of her house.

The three men were said to have aimed their guns at the victim's family and threatened to hurt them if they tried to do anything

"When the victim's father saw Azi being dragged into the car, he tried to save her, but one of the men pointed a Rambo knife at him, forcing the elderly to retreat and watch the victim being taken," he added.

According to the witness, their family received information that Azi might have been taken to Pengkalan Kubor – a town on the Malaysia-Thailand border – prompting her husband to rush to the location. However, she was nowhere to be found.

The family member said there were local residents who claimed to have seen a woman being taken by a group of men on a boat headed to a neighbouring country, while the Toyota Vios she was riding in was also found at an illegal jetty there.

According to the family member, the victim's husband travelled to the neighbouring country in search of his wife and has yet to return

"We know Azi has no enemies, and we haven't received any calls demanding ransom money, but we're not sure if anyone envied her for her cosmetics business," he said.

"Her parents are still shocked and saddened by this incident, and we are also praying for Azi's safe return," he added.

Tumpat district police chief ACP Amran Dolah said the victim's father lodged a report at the Palekbang police station yesterday evening, 14 September, reported New Straits Times.

The case is being investigated under Section 363 of the Penal Code for kidnapping.

Meanwhile, closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage showing the victim being abducted has gone viral on social media

Two men, both dressed in black and covering their faces with face masks, can be seen entering the victim's front porch in the surveillance footage.

When the victim's family get out of the house to help her, the third suspect, who was wearing a black and red T-shirt, steps out of the vehicle and points a knife at the family.
