KUALA LUMPUR: Police have solved the murder of a 21-year-old man in a housing project after arresting six suspects in connection with the murder.
The man was killed last month in the Taman Intan Baiduri People’s Housing (PPR) project in Kepong last month.
Sentul ACP District Police Chief Beh Eng Lai said all suspects between the ages of 24 and 42 were detained around Klang Valley yesterday, bringing the total number of detainees to nine.
“The investigation showed that three of the arrested suspects were responsible and directly involved in the murder,” he said today, adding that the motive for the murder was related to drug trafficking activities.
He said all suspects were unemployed and had previous criminal records on drug cases and were taken into custody for seven days until December 12.
“Thanks to these arrests, the case was considered resolved,” he said.
Beh said police had previously arrested three men on the same day of the incident, on November 25, and released them on police bail after their detention period.
During the incident at about 10 am, the housing project was circumcised by two men on a motorcycle. It was found that the victim went to PPR to set up tents.
In a separate case, a 35-year-old man was arrested in the meantime after he was suspected of involvement in an attack on the patron of a restaurant at Jalan Metro Perdana Taman Usahawan in Kepong on Friday.
The suspect was detained yesterday at 19:00 in Jalan Pudu and was detained until Wednesday for further days until further investigation.
“We are still looking for five more people involved in the case,” he said.
On December 4, the 21:50 incident resulted in a misunderstanding about the double parking incident. The 30-year-old victim and his wife were attacked by three angry men as the victim parked his vehicle twice and blocked the suspect’s car. -Appointed
