The main suspect wanted for the assassination of leading Malaysian banker Hussain Ahmad Najadi in the capital Kuala Lumpur in a daring day time hit late July, has been arrested, police say. But police have not recovered the murder weapon.
(Pictured, Hussain Ahmad Najadi was assassinated on July 29 in Kuala Lumpur).
So far this year, 322 people have been killed in Malaysia. Violent crimes have surpassed 15,000 in the first six months.
Faced with rising lawlessness, police launched an anti-crime push late last month.
Najadi, 75, the founder of Arab-Malaysian Development Bank was shot while he was with his wife, Cheong Mei Kuen, who was also wounded.
The suspect, known by his nicknam Sei Ngan Chai (four-eyed in Cantonese), was tracked to a house at Larut Tin Tambahan in Taiping and detained at about 12.30am yesterday, the New Paper reported.
Two other men, aged 31 and 26, and believed to be his accomplices, were also arrested.
Najadi was gunned down near the Kuan Yin Temple in Lorong Ceylon on July 29.
