Pic – Nadim Bokhari

A 23-year-old fishmonger was charged in the Kuching magistrate’s court today with the murder of two British medical students earlier this month.

However, no plea was taken from Zulkipli Abdullah, who faced two charges.

Magistrate Portia Tham ordered the case to be mentioned on September 19, pending further instruction from the senior federal counsel.

Zulkipli is charged with murdering Aidan Brunger (pic), 22, and Neil Dalton, 23, between 4.10am and 4.15am on August 6 at Jalan Abell.

Four other suspects, who were arrested together with the accused in connection with the murder, were released on bail of RM20,000 in one surety. – Bernama
