A man died after complaining of breathing difficulties while being detained at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters lock-up in Kuala Lumpur last night.

In the 9pm incident, the man had complained of chest pains before being brought to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, said City CID chief Ku Chin Wah.

He said the 32-year-old man was one of four suspects arrested in connection with a shooting case in Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras on May 11.

“A post-mortem will be done at HKL,” he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur today.

In other developments, Ku said police had been given an extension on the remand till Monday on the second suspect held in connection with the murder of Customs deputy director-general (Customs/ Internal Tax) Shaharuddin Ibrahim.

He said police needed more time to wrap up investigations.

Shaharuddin was shot dead while on his way to work in Putrajaya in April 26.
