Mr Harvinder Singh, 33, had left Singapore 30 minutes before the body of his wife, Ms Jasvinder Kaur, was found. The police are now looking for the senior logistics coordinator.

The decapitated body of a woman found in Whampoa River last week has been identified as that of Ms Jasvinder Kaur, the 33-year-old wife of a logistics executive, also 33, who was working here on an employment pass.

Police also said on Thursday that a 25-year-old forklift driver has been arrested in connection with her murder, and they are looking for her husband Harvinder Singh to help in their investigations.

All three are Indian nationals.

Mr Singh, who is friends with the forklift driver, had left Singapore 30 minutes before his wife's body was found - without her head and hands - and reported to the police by a jogger and cleaner at about 7.30am last Thursday.
