SHAH ALAM: Police have obtained a three-day extension for the remand of a motorist who allegedly killed two people on the Federal Highway.
The remand order extension was granted by the Shah Alam High Court senior deputy registrar Norliza Hussin.
In the Sept 12 accident, the 24-year-old man was driving against the flow of traffic on the Federal Highway towards Klang and rammed into another vehicle.
The suspect, who was driving a pick-up truck, was allegedly under the influence of drugs.
Two people in the other car – an 18-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man – were killed in the accident.
The case has been classified as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
In a statement after the accident, Shah Alam district police chief Asst Comm Baharudin Mat Taib said urine tests indicated the pick-up truck driver was positive for marijuana.
He had been remanded for six days before the three-day extension.
