SUBANG JAYA: The 33-year-old man, wanted for allegedly killing his wife at their Taman Puchong Utama home here, has finally been detained in a house in Perak.

A team from the Subang Jaya police district headquarters managed to track down the man, who is believed to be a syabu addict in Ipoh, at about 11.30pm on Tuesday.

Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli said the man was wanted for beating his 25-year-old wife to death at their home on Friday.

“We believe this case has been solved with the arrest of the husband.

“We will question him further to uncover what had actually occurred on the day the wife died,” he said when contacted on Wednesday.

It was reported that the 33-year-old cyber cafe employee was said to have fled after allegedly murdering his wife and was last believed to be in Kedah.

The post-mortem examination on the suspect’s wife, whose body also tested positive for syabu consumption, revealed that the woman had been a victim of abuse for years.

Doctors found that the woman had suffered a broken left rib and had bruises in various stages of healing.

Some were fresh while others were fully healed or showed scars, whereby the wounds on her head and face suggest that the victim had been strangled and had her head slammed on the ground.

The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

The wife’s body was discovered by the suspect’s brother when the latter went to their home on Friday.

Police had earlier launched a manhunt for Vasudevan Balan (pic), 33 to assist investigation to alleged murder of his wife.
