PETALING JAYA: A murder suspect, believed to be involved in the killing of three of his brothers in Pakistan, was arrested with the help of Malaysian police and deported home over the weekend, according to a news report.

Pakistan’s ARY News reported that the arrest was made with the help of Interpol.

The suspect was taken to Lahore from Kuala Lumpur on Friday night and was later handed over to police in Charsadda, located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan, where the killings took place.

The suspect, identified as Nadir Khan, was remanded for 10 days, ARY News said.
