KUALA LUMPUR: A woman arrested by the police on Thursday is believed to be close to one of the suspects in the Banting murders.
According to the Bukit Aman Facebook page, the woman surrendered at 5pm on Thursday at the Dang Wangi police station and had been placed on remand for six days by the Bukit Jalil magistrate’s court.
It is learnt that she is the girlfriend of one of the suspects and could be a vital link in creating a strong case for the authorities in the alleged murders.
Sources said police hoped the information she provides would be the “final piece” in completing their investigation papers before submission to the Attorney-General.
Meanwhile, police have obtained a fresh remand order against three suspects in the Banting murders.
The suspects, including the two lawyer brothers, were remanded for six days in connection with the disappearance of businessman Mohd Shafiq Abdullah.
The suspects were re-arrested on Thursday after their earlier remand order for investigations into the disappearance of Indian businessman A. Muthuraja expired.
Mohd Shafiq is believed to have been murdered at the Ladang Gadong farm after his leather-strapped wristwatch was found there.
His wife Samson Nahar Mohd Dali had said that Mohd Shafiq, who had business dealings with the brothers, had been missing since April 8 after going to Banting.
She lodged a police report on April 13.
