Manhunt underway for suspects involved in gruesome murder at Johor petrol station

Various parts of Johor Baru city centre have been placed on lockdown as police hunt for the suspects involved in the brutal murder at a Shell petrol station in Taman Pelangi on Sunday (Dec 18), Malaysia media reports said.

Khalil said that a description of the suspects' auto, a white BMW with the registration plate WB79L, was posted on Johor police's Facebook page.

Johor Criminal Investigation Department head Azman Ayob said yesterday that no arrest has been made in connection with the case.

"Investigators are looking at the possibility that the registration number may have been duplicated and used by the actual suspects", another source said, adding that investigations were still ongoing.

"Any false information spread online may jeopardise investigations into the case. We will update the public if there is any new development", he said.

Johor police chief Commissioner Datuk Mohd Khalil Kader Mohd said a foreign woman believed to be the victim's wife was inside the auto, whom proceeded to immediately run for help.


According to a report by The Star, the 44-year-old deceased's nickname is believed to be Ah Chiu.

The incident occurred when the victim who was with a woman, in her 20's and believed to be his wife, was said to be inflating his vehicle tyre at the station, when the four suspects suddenly appeared and tried to pull him into their auto. Members of the public are urged to call the police if they find the white BMW. The man had parked his Volkswagen Polo at the petrol station to check his tyres when the suspects approached him.

"The victim managed to free himself, but the suspects then got back into their auto, made a turn and mowed him down, and then reversed the vehicle and knocked him down again before escaping", Khalil told reporters at the scene.

The victim, however, was reported to have fought back and this resulted in a scuffle between the suspects and the victim.

After the victim was stabbed, the suspects threw an explosive device, believed to be a firecracker, at him before re-entering their vehicle.

With the man on the ground, his assailants got into their auto, circled the petrol station and knocked down the man.
