WHICH LUMPUR: Police have solved the murder of a 21-year-old man in a housing project here after arresting six suspects linked to the murder.
The man was killed in the Taman Intan Baiduri Village Housing Project (PPR) in Kepong last month.
ACP Beh Eng Lai Sentul district police chief said all the suspects aged 24 to 42 were picked up around the Klang valley yesterday, and in this case all the people arrested were nine.
“Investigations showed that they were responsible for the three suspects arrested and were directly involved in the murder,” he said here today, adding that the cause of the murder is linked to drug trafficking activities.
He said all the suspects were unemployed and had a previous criminal record with drug cases and had been ordered for seven days until December 12th.
“It is understood that with these arrests the case has been resolved,” he said.
Beh said earlier that police had arrested three men on the same day of the incident, November 25, and released them on bail after the end of the provisional period.
It happened around 10 a.m. when the two men cut the victim off on a motorcycle in a housing project. It is known that the victim went to the PPR to set up tents.
Meanwhile, in a separate case, a 35-year-old man was arrested on Friday after he was suspected of assaulting a restaurant owner in Jepan Metro Perdana Taman Usahawan restaurant in Kepong.
The suspect was arrested around 7pm yesterday at Jalan Pudun and jailed for four days until further investigation for Wednesday.
“We are still looking for five other people involved in the lawsuit,” he said.
On Dec. 4, the 9:50 p.m. incident occurred as a result of a misunderstanding surrounding a double-parking incident. The 30-year-old victim and his wife were attacked by three angry men as the victim parked a double in his vehicle blocking the suspect’s car. -Name
