Petrol station murder: Cops to seek extradition of alleged mastermind
IGP Mohamad Fuzi Harun says a team will be sent to Thailand to seek the extradition of the man back to Malaysia.
Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun says his team will cooperate fully with Thai authorities.
KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) will send a team to Thailand to seek the extradition of a Malaysian believed to have masterminded the murder of a man at a petrol station in Johor Bahru last December.
Inspector-General of Police Mohamad Fuzi Harun said his team would give their full cooperation to the Thai authorities throughout the process.
âI can confirm the arrest of the man this morning, and we will send a team to seek extradition of the suspect back to Malaysia,â he said at the Bukit Aman mosque here last night.
The man, in his 40s, was arrested by a team of Thai police officers at 7am yesterday in Chaiyaphum province, about 260km northeast of Bangkok.
In the incident on Dec 17, a 44-year-old man known as âAh Chiuâ was stabbed and run over by several men in a white BMW car at a petrol station in Taman Pelangi, Johor.
Police have since arrested several men and a woman, and brought two suspects to court in January.
The search continues for several other suspects who are still at large.
