TAPAH - Police have obtained a fresh remand order of another seven days for the family of four connected to the murders of four people here.
A police spokesman said the suspects would be remanded until next Wednesday to assist in investigations into the disappearance of tour bus operator V. Gunawaty, who was reported missing in March 2014.
This is their third remand since the four suspects - a 57-year-old mechanic, his wife, 54, and their two sons aged 20 and 17, - were first arrested by police on Oct 26 at their house cum workshop on Jalan Pahang here where the murders allegedly took place.
The family of suspects were previously remanded for 25 days to assist in investigations of two victims Jasbeer Singh and Ng Chor Kee, a spare parts dealer who was reported missing in June 2014.
It was reported that the disappearance of land broker Jasbeer who was reported missing in August, had led police to the suspects' dilapidated house.
The four victims were believed to have been beaten to death, their remains burnt and ashes scattered in a river behind the house.
Police have yet to release the identities of the victims although the families of four missing persons have come forward to say that their loved ones could be those murdered.
The other missing person is bus conductor Ng Ah Leng@Mohan who was last seen by his family in late 2012.
