The Singapore Police Force (SPF) helped to nab seven suspects between the ages of 19-23 in Singapore who are linked to the brutal murder at a Johor Bahru petrol station, after receiving a request for assistance from Royal Malaysian Police (RMP).

All the suspects have been handed over to the Malaysian authorities for further investigations.

This latest news follows Malaysian police chief Khalil Kader Mohd’s announcement that four other men who were involved with the murder – where a man, 44-year-old Tan Ah Choy, was stabbed and mowed down twice – were apprehended during a special operation yesterday morning.

Just a day before that, a 19-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman with links to the case were arrested.

This means that a total of 13 individuals have been nabbed so far, with the Khalil revealing that they are tracking more suspects. He added:

“Surely when we detained someone, we know that he or she is able to facilitate our investigations. In this case… we do not discount the possibility. Whether they have a direct or indirect involvement, I cannot comment. We just know they have something that they can tell us. Let us investigate first.”
