KULAI, March 20 (Bernama) -- The police have no leads to the abduction of Pastor Raymond Koh Keng Joo, confirmed Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

He repeated his advice to the public against over-generating publicity for the case to enable the police to conduct their investigation smoothly.

"Too much speculation in the media could endanger the victim. I am worried, because our investigation is in a stalemate as we don't have further information on the missing pastor. I believe it is due to too much publicity.

"To the media, individuals and NGO who want to get involved in kidnap cases, shut your bloody mouth; you are putting the victim at a high degree of danger," he told reporters here today, on the abduction of Pastor Koh on Feb 13.

On the case involving a 31-year-old part-time Uber driver who was charged with demanding RM30,000 from Koh's son, Jonathan, at Paradigm Mall at 9.46pm on March 6, Khalid said the man was not involved in the pastor's abduction.

"The people who abducted Pastor Raymond are obviously very meticulous and when people keep blabbering till the whole world knows, we can't tell what has become of him.

There's no lead now. I'm with the family. We are worried too," he added.
