In a statement by Ampang Jaya district police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Azam Ismail, police received a report regarding the incident at around 1.10pm.

“His body was later found lying face down behind the Smart Sungai Klang Control Station fence,” he said.
Mohd Azam said the victim suffered severe injuries to his legs and was pronounced dead at the scene.
