ndonesian maid Kartini who was found dead with bruises to the head is believed to have been abused by her employer at a terrace house in Jalan 17/26 here today. Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed said one of the employer's children contacted Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) at 2pm asking for emergency aid.
However, due to the location HKL informed Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (PPUM) which sent an ambulance at 3.25pm.
"On arrival, the medical team found the maid, in her 20s, lying dead in the living room," he told Bernama here today. The team suspected foul play as they found bruises and injuries to the body and then contacted the police. Arjunaidi said the Indonesian maid only started working at the house two months ago.
The house was occupied by a 75 year-old man who has advanced cancer, his sick wife, a son (30s) and daughter (20s). "Police have summoned the employer's two children to find the real cause for the maid's death," he said.
The body was sent to PPUM for a post-morten while the case was investigated under Section 302 of Penal Code for murder. - Bernama
