The body of an Indian national, who had jumped into the sea after seriously injuring his girlfriend in a knife attack, was found by a fisherman, media reports said on Sunday.
Police have identified the Indian as Gnana Subramaniam Dhan Sekara Gurukkal, who was reportedly unemployed.
Media reports had said that on Wednesday, Gnana slashed his 21-year-old former girlfriend with a knife in a car before leaving her by the roadside.
He reportedly drove recklessly, colliding with a motorcyclist and hitting a road sign along the way before abandoning the car, walking to the Esplanade and jumping into the sea.
Fisherman Abdul Rahim Saiful Rahman said he was hoping to catch some prawns along the shore in Jelutong Expressway when he discovered the body near a construction site there.
He alerted a friend who contacted the fire and rescue department and the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency.
The interior of the car, in which he attacked the girl, was splattered with blood.
A six-inch knife, an Indian passport and a bag were found in the car which belonged to a friend.
The woman, who received 70 stitches on her head and chest, is reported to be in stable condition though her identity or nationality has not been mentioned.
