Two arrested for multiple break-ins of veteran newsman's home

PETALING JAYA: Two suspects linked to the serial house break-in of veteran journalist Subramaniam Harihar have been arrested.

When contacted, Petaling Jaya deputy police chief Supt Ku Mashariman Ku Mahmood confirmed the arrests.

"One suspect is a foreigner and the other is local. They were caught on Saturday (Aug 6).Both will be remanded until Wednesday (Aug 10) to assist in investigations," said Supt Ku Mashariman.

When asked if the same groups were responsible for the break-ins, Supt Ku Mashariman said that it would be investigated if that was the case.

Speaking to The Star previously, Subramaniam, 79, said that his house had been broken into four times since July, with the most recent one on Aug 4.

Valuables like silverware, brass lamps, watches and other items worth more than RM100,000 were lost during the multiple break-ins at his home.

What is worse is that these items are priceless as they are a reminder of his wife, who passed away in 2014.
