JEMPOL: The skeletal remains found in the water tank at Felda Palong 12 here on March 25, have been confirmed to be that of Muhammad Aiman Hakim Mat Ani, 22, a student of Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Raub, Pahang, who went missing about a year ago.
Muhammad Aiman Hakim, a final year student of the UiTM Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics, was reported missing on July 9 last year.
The water tank is owned by Syarikat Air Negri Sembilan (Sains) at Felda Palong 12.
Jempol District Police Chief Supt Muhd Nur Hishamuddin Hashim in a statement here said this was based on a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) test conducted on the remains to ascertain its identity.
“The result of the test has been made known to the victim’s family. The DNA testing took time as the skeletal remains were not intact and believed to have been in the water tank for a long time,” he said.
