As a policeman, Iskandar Rahmat was once commended for providing good customer service.

But in the months leading up to the double murder in Kovan, the senior staff sergeant from Bedok Police Division was neck-deep in debt.

Checks showed that he was declared a bankrupt on Thursday - just a day after he allegedly killed Mr Tan Boon Sin, 67, and his son Mr Tan Chee Heong, 42.

Documents also revealed that he owed more than $62,000 to OCBC Bank, and that his financial troubles started as early as June last year.
