SHAH ALAM: Selangor police are investigating the authenticity of a video purportedly showing 62-year-old pastor Raymond Koh being abducted in Petaling Jaya on the morning of Feb 13.

State Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said he has seen the video, which the police have recently received.

“We are treating it as information to investigate Koh’s abduction. At this moment, we cannot confirm the authenticity of the video yet as we need to investigate deeper,” he told the New Straits Times today.

The 2 minutes 53 seconds video of the alleged abduction of Koh has gone viral on social media.

The video showed Koh’s abduction, which was said to have happened “under a minute with seven vehicles and at least 15 men involved in what appears to be a well-planned and professionally executed operation”.

Koh was believed to have been abducted by masked men at Jalan SS4B/10 in Kelana Jaya, less than 100m from a police housing complex.

The Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar had late last month said a special task force led by Fadzil has been set up to investigate the case.

Koh’s family members have offered a reward of RM10,000 for information on the incident. The reward was then raised to RM100,000.
