According to a post uploaded on PDRM's official Facebook page yesterday, Urby was given the medal along with his handler, Koperal Umbat Anak Selan from the KLIA police headquarters, for successfully locating the body of a murder victim in October this year.

The victim, a Bangladeshi national, had been reported missing

The 35-year-old victim's body was discovered on 12 October in bushes in Kuala Langat with the help of the K9 Unit that was led by Urby, reported Harian Metro.
