Deputy public prosecutor Hakim Amir Abdul Hamid did not offer bail saying it was a non-bailable offence.

Counsel R. Sivaraj represented Ramachandran while the other five were unrepresented.

The court fixed Aug 27 for mention.

On June 27, Selangor Criminal Investigations Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said the victim’s remains were found near Batu 27, Jalan Rawang Bestari Jaya.

He said police had received a report that the victim was kidnapped on June 10.

The kidnappers allegedly contacted the victim’s son on the same day and made a RM50 million ransom demand.

“The victim was kidnapped while exercising at a playground in Jalan Persiaran Perdana, Bandar Sri Damansara, Petaling Jaya, at 10.30am,” he said in a statement.

Fadzil said initial investigations revealed that the mastermind was a person known to the victim.

A source close to the investigation said the mastermind and the victim had been friends and had business dealings together over the years.

“Recently, they had a ‘misunderstanding’ involving financial matters.

“This is most likely the reason behind the victim’s kidnapping and subsequent death,” the source said.
