SINGAPORE - A 23-year-old male suspect has been arrested for murder after a 30-year-old man was found dead at a building along Sungei Kadut Loop on Monday (March 11).

Another man aged 29 years old was found with injuries and was conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

The Straits Times understands the suspect is a work permit holder who is the victims’ employee at furniture store Ji Ji, which operates at the International Furniture Centre building.

The store’s two Singaporean directors - Mr Lin Xinjie and Mr Li Mingqiao - are understood to be the deceased and the injured respectively.

The case has been classified as murder, said the police.

The police said they received a call for assistance at 12.57pm, and found the man lying motionless inside the building when they arrived.

He was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene, said the police in a statement on Monday.

Preliminary investigations by the police revealed that the victims and suspect knew one another.

When ST visited the scene of the incident on Monday night, the police were seen taking away several items from the building, including a chair.  

The suspect is expected to be charged in court on Wednesday.

Police are investigating the incident.
