SHAH ALAM: Police are still looking for three men in connection with the murder of a PKR Youth member in Seksyen 7, here, on Jan 7.
State police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the three men, whom they believe to shed some light into the murder of M. Thiyahu, 30, were R. Logesvaran, 26; P.S. Tamil Kumaran, 33; and, another who goes by the name Sree.
“Police urge those with information on their whereabouts should contact the nearest police station. This morning, we charged a suspect in the case at the Shah Alam magistrate’s court.
“Four others whom we arrested earlier have been released,” he told reporters at the state police headquarters after attending a ceremony for the handing over of duties for the state Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) chief.
Asked about the motive behind Thiyahu’s murder, Mazlan declined comment.
“One suspect has been charged in court and we do not want to interfere with the court process.”
Thiyahu was hacked to death by three men armed with parang at the ground floor of the Nilam Sari flats in Jalan Plumbum, here, on Jan 7.
He was rushed to Shah Alam Hospital following the 5pm attack but died while receiving treatment.
At today’s ceremony, Assistant Commissioner Harjinder Kaur took over as state CCID chief, from Superintendent Muhamad Tarmizi Awang, who had been acting chief.
