On Saturday night, 23 June, the lifeless body of a Grab driver with strangulation marks on the neck was found in the backseat of his Perodua Myvi car at the parking lot in Taman Selayang Makmur
According to a report in Bernama, the Grab driver was identified as 27-year-old Aiman Nosri, whose body was found in the backseat of the car in a bizarre inverted position, with his head on the floor and his legs upright at about 8.20 pm.
"Police checks found lacerations on the neck of the victim but no weapons were found at the scene," Gombak district deputy police chief Supt Tey Kong Seng said.
Aiman's body has been sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital
The cops who discovered his body were responding to a request by the victim's stepfather to check on his vehicle, according to a report in NST Online.
"When they arrived at the location, they found the victim in the back seat, upside down. A team from the Selayang Hospital arrived at the scene soon after, and confirmed that the man was dead," Superintendent Tey Kong Seng said.
"Further investigation found that there are no CCTVs in the area and that there are no witnesses to the (man's death). We also found no weapon or suspicious item in the vehicle," he added while revealing that the victim was from Nilai, Negri Sembilan.
The Forensic Unit of the Selangor Police Contingent Headquarters found two mobile phones, a pair of shoes and socks, a pair of slippers and a shirt in the car.
Records showed that Aiman last ferried passengers from Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock to Selayang Baru at 9.34pm on Thursday, 22 June
An individual named Raja Mzairi, who claimed to be Aiman's uncle, posted on Facebook, asking for "any information regarding him and his last moments" so that the family could get the full picture behind what really happened.
Meanwhile, Grab has issued a statement
"On behalf of the Grab family, we offer our deepest condolences to our driver-partner and his family during this time of loss.
"He was a hard-working and a top performing driver, and based on passengers' feedback, he was well appreciated by his passengers," read the statement.
