CAMP OLIVAS – Police on Thursday apprehended the prime suspect in the killing of a Pakistani national last May in Dinalupihan, Bataan.
Bataan police chief Col. Palmer Tria said operatives of the Bataan Provincial Intelligence Unit led by Lt. Alexander Aurelio together with the Mariveles police and Bataan 2nd PMFC conducted a police operation at Sitio Judea Brgy. Mt. View, Mariveles, Bataan which led to the apprehension of Angelo Perez, 30, of Purok 1, Brgy. Bangal, Dinalupihan, Bataan.
Perez was arrested based on a warrant of arrest issued by the San Fernando City, Pampanga RTC for frustrated murder.
Seized from him were a hand grenade, one .45 pistol loaded with six live bullets, a .45 magazine with eight live bullets, 10 live bullets for .45 pistol, 24 live bullets for .38 gun, and four sachets of shabu.
The arrest followed the alleged involvement of Perez in the fatal shooting of Imran Akhtar, a 44-year-old businessman from Pakistan on May 23 at a private resort located in Dinalupihan.
“The arrest of Perez sheds light on the long-pending case as the motive behind the killing is yet to be determined and investigation continues in order to identify any potential accomplices involved in the crime. We also encourage anyone with relevant information to come forward and help give justice to the victim and his family,” said PRO3 Director PGen Jose Hidalgo Jr.
