Mr Qu then called his friend, Mr Seah, a 57-year-old general worker and St George resident to meet him. He lodged a police report on behalf of Mr Qu, who does not speak English.

Police declined to comment as to whether this incident is related to the murder of 33-year-old beautician Jasvinder Kaur, citing ongoing investigation. In December last year, her decapitated body was found wrapped in trash bags and floating in a waterway between McNair and St George's Road.
