Speaking to reporters, KL acting CID chief, Khairi Ahrasa said that initial investigations showed that both incidents were related to the long standoff of political turmoil in Myanmar.
He said police was undertaking all necessary action to investigate the matter.
“The body found in a car boot in Ampang was a body of a political activist. We have yet to obtain solid lead on the murder case.
“We believe that both incidents are somehow connected and its because of the political instability in Myanmar,” he said.
On the other hand, a police source said that the attempted murder on Dr Aye Maung in Bukit Bintang last weekend was due to a political dispute between him (Dr Aye ) and those who are not happy with the way Dr Aye handles political matters.
The source added that Dr Aye’s visit to Malaysia was to have a discussion among Myanmarese at the embassy. It is learnt that Dr Aye did not request for security escort.
“They were here to talk on political issues with the embassy and they did not ask for security escort,” he added.
“Apparently some quarters are not happy with Dr Aye but investigation is still ongoing.
“Five people were in the car during the incident, four have left the country and one is still here,” the source said.
CCTV footage may provide leads
It is learnt that police are currently studying the CCTV footage along Jalan Alor and Bukit Bintang in efforts to identify the two suspects who were on a motorbike.
The killing was said to have happened due to an alleged rape incident of a Rakhine girl.
Last Wednesday, in what was suspected to be an assassination attempt, two Myanmar political party leaders narrowly escaped death when two men on a motorcycle fired several shots at their direction in Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang.
Since then, a special squad has been established in carrying out investigations based on a number of evidence obtained from the 11.30pm incident, including footage from closed-circuit television (CCTV) along the path used by Dr Aye, Arakan League for Democracy Party chairman Aye Thor Aung, together with two other Myanmar nationals.
