Singaporean police have detained a man believed to be involved in a gruesome murder case connected to the discovery of eight human body parts which were discarded into the bushes in the Krubong industrial area in Malacca yesterday afternoon.

Malacca police chief Mat Kasim Karim said the suspect, a Singaporean, who was believed to be related to the victim was detained by Singaporean authorities today.

“An application for the warrant of arrest has been submitted to the Malacca Magistrate's Court and efforts are being made to bring the suspect to Malaysia. Further investigations will be conducted after the remand order for the suspect is obtained,” he said in a media statement today.

Mat Kasim said based on police information, the victim was believed to have been killed in a double-storey terrace house in Taman Merdeka, which belonged to the suspect.

He said police had found bloodstains in the downstairs bedroom of the house.

Yesterday, Bernama reported that police found at least eight incomplete human body parts in the bushes near the Kampung Ladang main road near the Krubong industrial district.
