KUALA LUMPUR: Police have arrested a car spare parts dealer in connection with the murder of Customs deputy director-general Datuk Shaharuddin Ibrahim.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the 37-year-old man was arrested at around 2pm on Tuesday in Kuala Lumpur.
"We have remanded the man to facilitate further investigations.
"We are doubling our efforts to ascertain the motive for the murder," he told a press conference at the City police headquarters Wednesday.
Shaharuddin, who headed the Customs and Internal Tax Unit division, was a year away from retirement when he was shot on April 26.
The Negri Sembilan-born Shaharuddin served the department for over 30 years, where his work earned him the moniker "Mr Clean".
