Myanmar national detained in murder investigation of countryman

KUANTAN, Jan 8 (Bernama) — Police have detained a Myanmar national believed to be involved in a murder case of his countryman who was a nursery worker in Bera last Sunday.

State Crime Investigation Department head ACP Datuk Othman Nayan said the suspect, in his 30s, was detained for two hours after a report was lodged about the victim’s body which was found by his colleague at the nursery at 4.30 am.

The suspect had previously planned to leave this country together, but the victim did not agree, which led to an argument.
