Police have arrested three Bangladeshi men for allegedly tying up one of their countrymen in a flat in Tropicana Selatan here yesterday for the purpose of extorting RM30,000 from him.
District police chief ACP Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the suspects, aged between 33 and 46, were nabbed when police raided the flat to free the man they had illegally confined.
He said another Bangladeshi man had alerted the police to the incident after being contacted by the victim.
“The victim, who works in a sundry shop in Damansara owned by one of the suspects, has not been paid his salary for three months and has been accused of taking money from the shop,” he said in a statement today.
He said the suspects have been remanded for three days until tomorrow.
