SB man's murder suspect has remand extended

KUALA LUMPUR: The suspect involved in the murder of L/Kpl T. Thivakar of the Bukit Aman Special Branch has been remanded for another five days.

Acting City CID chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said the remand of the suspect, who is a colleague of Thivakar, was extended from yesterday.

The suspect, a 33-year-old lance-corporal, was detained at about 11.30pm on Tuesday at the Travers police station some seven hours after Kpl’s Thivakar’s body was found near Bukit Persekutuan on Feb 4.

Kpl Thivakar, 37, was shot twice in the head.

When asked by reporters, his mother M. Selama said she last saw him going out to meet a friend to collect RM4,000 owed to him.
