The police have arrested a Myanmar man and a woman over the murder of a Grab driver in Selayang last Saturday (June 23).
Gombak District Police deputy chief Supt Tey Kong Seng said on Tuesday (June 26) that the man, in his 20s, and the woman, in her 30s, were picked up in the Selayang area at about 1am.
Grab driver Aiman Nosri, 27, was found dead with strangulation marks in his Perodua Myvi car at 8.20pm last Saturday in Taman Selayang Makmur.
Tey said the police identified the deceased’s last passenger from the management of the service.
According to the records, Aiman had picked up a passenger in Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock and headed to Selayang Baru.
A post-mortem revealed that Aiman died of suffocation after he was allegedly strangled with one of his T-shirts.
The police were trying to establish the motive for the murder. Aiman’s wallet and handphone were missing.
