Hunt for Deputy Customs D-G's murderer ends with main suspect's arrest

PETALING JAYA: The main suspect behind the murder of Deputy Customs Director-General Datuk Shaharuddin Ibrahim has been arrested.

After more than a year of being at large, the 30-year-old man was detained together with three others in two separate raids Tuesday morning.

"The four men were arrested in Ampang and Batu Caves, and are in their 30s and 40s," said a source.

The source added that one of the suspects then led police to a house in Taman Jati, Rawang, at about 10am Wednesday.

A T-shirt, believed to have been worn by the gunman on the day Shaharuddin was shot, was found there.

"The men are now in the Putrajaya police headquarters' lock-up," he said.

Shaharuddin, who headed the Customs and Internal Tax Unit Division, was a year away from retirement when he was shot on April 26 last year.

The Negri Sembilan-born Shaharuddin served the Department for over 30 years, where his work earned him the moniker "Mr Clean".
