KUALA LUMPUR: Police are close to identifying the suspects in the murder of Customs deputy director-general II Datuk Shaharuddin Ibrahim.
City CID deputy chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said no arrests had been made, but police had zoomed in on who the suspects were.
“From what we have now, it is very positive. We will try to identify them and arrest them as soon as possible,” he said at a press conference at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters, near here, yesterday.
“We have acquired a photofit of one suspect. We believe that the suspect is aged between 22 and 30,” added ACP Khairi.
The Negri Sembilan-born Shaharuddin, 58, who headed the Customs and Internal Tax Unit division, was a year away from retirement when he was shot dead on April 26.
