Couple held over Grab driver’s murder

Post-mortem reveals Grab driver died of suffocation after he was strangled with T-shirt. His wallet is missing.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have arrested a Myanmar man and a woman over the murder of a Grab driver in Selayang, near here, last Saturday.

Gombak district police deputy chief Supt Tey Kong Seng said today the man, in his 20s, and the woman, in her 30s, were picked up in the Selayang area about 1am today.

“The duo were arrested to assist in investigations into the murder,” he told Bernama.

The 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 near here.

Tey said police had identified the last passenger to have used Aiman’s car from the management of the e-hailing service.

According to the company’s 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.

Police are trying to establish the motive for the murder. Aiman’s wallet and handphone are missing.
