Kelantan Criminal Investigation Department chief Assistant Commissioner Wan Khairuddin Wan Idris said the suspects aged between 16 and 55 years were arrested separately in Pasir Puteh and two neighbouring districts on Sept 4 and yesterday.
“The arrest was to facilitate a police investigation into the murder of the 26-year-old man from Jerteh, Terengganu.
“The post mortem found the victim died after being struck by a blunt object on his head and several stab wounds on his body,” he said when contacted here today.
