Bandar Seri Begawan - A decomposed body of a man covered with maggots and believed to be set on fire was found by villagers who were collecting ferns at Simpang 142-122 in Kg Selayun, Sengkurong Tuesday evening, the police said yesterday.

SAC Peng Eng Lee, Director of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), said the Sengkurong Police Station received a call at around 9pm Tuesday evening stating that some villagers have found human skeletal remains in Spg 124-122 Kg. Selayun.

The road where the decomposed body was found is where the villagers dump their rubbish.

When the police arrived at the crime scene, they found the partly burnt body. Initial examinations by pathologists showed that the body could have been dumped there about three to four days ago.

The Special Investigation Unit of the CID is carrying out an investigation.

"It's the remains of a man. The lower part of the body is still with flesh while the upper part is decomposed as the skull and bones are visibly seen.

"The villagers who found the body were overcome by the foul smell while collecting ferns. The place is now being cordoned off,” SAC Peng added.
