A group of people who were allegedly involved in the murder of a 31-year old man at Orchard Towers were brought back to the scene of the crime yesterday (July 9).

This comes exactly a week after the alleged murder incident, which took place last Tuesday (July 2).

Four of the reportedly seven suspects were accompanied by the police and could be seen dressed in red t-shirts, navy shorts and slippers. They were all also restrained at the wrists and ankles.

Natalie Siow, the only female accused at the scene, was accompanied by plain-clothes female police officers.

The accused were all brought back to the crime scene to supposedly re-enact the event. The four were taken to the first-storey entrance of the building and a club on the second floor, presumably Naughty Girl, where an argument between the victim and accused had purportedly taken place.

During the process of investigations the seven accused persons will be held at the Central Police Division. They will not be allowed bail because of the capital charge they face, and after a three-week psychiatric evaluation, they will be held at Changi Prison.

They will all appear in court tomorrow (July 11).

Tan Sen Yang, 27,Loo Boon Chong, 25, Tan Hong Seng, 22, Joel Tan Yun Sheng, 26, Chan Jia Xing, 26, Ang Da Yuan, 26, and Siow Yu Zhen, 22, make up the seven accused in the case.

They allegedly killed 31-year old Satheesh Noel Gobidass.

On the day of the incident, the victim collapsed near an escalator in the building and was found lying motionless in a pool of blood. Members of the public attended to his injuries.

The police were alerted at 6.25am, where the victim was sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital unconscious and pronounced dead an hour later.

Five of the eight are expected to be charged in court for murder with common intention, which carries a potential death penalty.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage of Orchard Towers shows a group of men and women walking towards and attacking the victim after he steps off the escalator.
