BUKIT MERTAJAM, May 16 — Police have identified the five individuals believed to have been involved in the murder of a man near a food court in Kampung Baru here two days ago.
Seberang Perai Tengah district police chief ACP Shafee Abd Samad said police were tracking down the five suspects — four men and a woman — who are believed to be still in the state.
“Investigations show that the five suspects knew the murder victim. However, we have yet to establish the motive for the murder,” he said when contacted today.
