The High Commission of Pakistan in Singapore yesterday claimed the body of Muhammad Noor, 59, whose legless corpse was found in a blood-soaked suitcase last week.

The body of Mr Muhammad, a Pakistani national, will be flown back to his home town in Lahore, Pakistan, this afternoon.

Two other Pakistanis - Rasheed Muhammad, 43, and Ramzan Rizwan, 25 - have been arrested and charged with his murder.

They are accused of killing Mr Muhammad between midnight on June 10 and 6.04pm on June 11 in a room at 6B Rowell Road, where the trio are believed to have stayed since reportedly arriving in Singapore in mid-May to sell tissue paper.
