Legless body murder: They killed my business

Murder is just bad for business.

Just ask the owner of the unnamed lodging house at 6B, Rowell Road.

Located in an area known for prostitution and cheap accommodation, 6B is now known for its connection to a grisly murder.

Rowell Road is just behind Desker Road, one of the more notorious of Singapore's red light districts.

On June 11, the legless body of a man was found tucked in a suitcase dripping with blood. The suspects were traced to the lodging house. And since the arrests of two Pakistani guests of the lodging house on the same day, business has slowed to a crawl.

The co-owner of 6B agreed to speak on condition of anonymity.

John (not his real name) said he met the alleged killers again yesterday. To re-enact the crime, police took the two suspects separately back to the lodging house.

At around 10.30am, detectives got John to unlock the front door of his lodging house.

The two Pakistani suspects - Rasheed Muhammad, 43, and Ramzan Rizwan, 25 - and the victim, Mr Muhammad Noor, 59, are believed to have been roommates at 6B.
