KUCHING: Two of the three murder cases in Sibu this year have been solved, while two others in Kuching and Miri are being investigated, said state deputy police commissioner Dato Law Hong Soon.
He said the case of murdered bank manager Stephen Wong was considered solved following the recent arrest of six persons while the murder of businessman Ling Tong Hock, his mother Leong Nyuk Lan and children David and Amy in January this year was solved following the arrest of a 17-year-old boy.
“The remaining cases involving the shooting deaths of businessmen in Sibu, Kuching and Miri respectively are still under investigation with no new development,” Law said during a press conference at General Operations Force headquarters here yesterday.
He advised members of the public and the media to refrain from speculating on the cases – be they solved or not – to avoid spreading inaccurate information.
On an unrelated matter, Law revealed that police recovered an air pistol together with an empty bullet magazine from an apartment complex at Jalan Sharif Masahor here on Thursday.
He said the pistol handed over to the police was found by a resident in a bag placed in the complex’s dumpster.
When asked, he said initial investigation did not point to the air gun being used in criminal activities in the city.
