Nevertheless, the police have assured Mr. Tham of their full commitment to the investigation.

Having purchased the Kia back in 2014 for RM 99,000, Mr. Tham relied heavily on it for his daily commute. His routine involved driving to a parking spot near the Johor Bahru checkpoint and then boarding a bus to Singapore for work.
