State Assemblyman's Murder: Kluang MIC Division Official Arrested

A Kluang MIC division leader was arrested by police early Tuesday, in connection with what is believed to be the contract killing of former Tenggaroh state assemblyman Datuk S. Krishnasamy last January.

A police team picked up the 48-year-old man at a house about 4am.

The suspect was taken to a magistrate's court here, where a seven day-remand was obtained to facilitate investigations into the murder of the Johor MIC deputy chairman.

The police were tight-lipped over details of the arrest.

On Jan 11, Krishnasamy was found shot dead in a lift at the state MIC building in Jalan Segget about 2.10pm. (Read here and here)

He had sustained a gunshot wound below the left eyebrow.

At the time, a motorcyclist was seen speeding away in a red Yamaha RXZ towards Jalan Wong Ah Fook.-- BERNAMA
