GOMBAK - MALAYSIAN private investigator P. Balasubramaniam's house in Taman Pelangi here was broken into but police have yet to ascertain if anything had been stolen.
According to a neighbour, Ms M. Eswary, a Form Four student, she noticed the back grille gate of Mr Balasubramaniam's house was ajar at 2.30pm on Thursday.
'I went to inspect and found the gate and a door leading to the kitchen opened. There was a set of keys each hanging on the padlock gate and the door,' said Ms Eswary, who alerted her father M. Sadasuvam, who later made a police report.
Mr Balasubramaniam is said to have taken refuge in a neighbouring country with his wife and children.
Gombak police chief Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Abdullah said police were unable to ascertain what was stolen from Mr Balasubramaniam's house and that the burglars used a duplicate set of keys to gain entry.
Last Thursday, Mr Balasubramaniam rocked the nation with a statutory declaration alleging that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had an affair with murdered Mongolian Altantuya Shaariibuu. He was then represented by lawyer Americk Singh Sidhu.
However, in a press conference called less than 24 hours later, he made a second statutory declaration retracting all those allegations. He even appeared with a new lawyer.
Immediately after the press conference, he left with that lawyer and was never seen or heard by anyone. -- The Star/ANN.BERITADARIGUNUNG
