His body was found at 9.44am yesterday, after an almost 15-hour search involving 11 personnel, said the Kedah state Fire and Rescue Department Operations Centre Chief, Supt Zamani Ismail.

“We received a call and rushed to the location based on information from the police that a suspected man may have drowned in the river while trying to escape a police raid Wednesday afternoon.
