SINGAPORE - Another two Malaysians were charged in court on Thursday with the murder of a compatriot at a multi-storey carpark at Pearls Centre.

This brings the total number of accused to four.

Ananthan Muniandy, 20, and Kirubakaran Manikumaran, 22, are accused of causing the death of Mr S. Krisnan Value, 47, at the building in Eu Tong Sen Street in the early hours of Sunday.

The alleged offence is said to have been committed with Sunder Rangasamy, 27, and Thiagu Muniandy, 23, who appeared in court on Tuesday.

Mr Krisnan's body was found lying on the 11th floor at an abandoned section of the carpark. It is believed that broken bottles were found near the body.

Ananthan and Kirubakaran were arrested in Malaysia on Tuesday with the help of the Malaysian police.

They will be remanded at Central Police Division for a week with permission given for police to take them out for investigation.

All four will appear in court on Sept 16.
