BANGKOK (BERNAMA) - After being on the run for several months, the alleged mastermind behind the brutal murder of a man at a petrol station in Johor Baru last December has been caught in Thailand.

The suspect, who is in his 40s and has a large tattoo on his right arm, was apprehended by a team of Thai police officers in Chaiyaphum province, about 260km northeast of Bangkok around 7am on Tuesday (May 29).

"The man is the most sought after suspect in the murder case. He is the alleged mastermind," Royal Malaysian Police assistant liaison officer in Thailand Supt Ridzuan Abdul Aziz told Bernama.

A video clip of the petrol station attack went viral on social media.

In the Dec 17 incident, a 44-year-old man kn own as "Ah Chiu" was stabbed and run over by a white BMW car at Taman Pelangi petrol station.

The police arrested several men and women suspected to be linked to the case.

The police also charged two suspects last January, while maintaining a hunt for several other suspects who remained on the run.

The capture of the alleged mastermind followed a request for assistance from Malaysian authorities several months ago.

The man faces extradition to Malaysia.

In an interview with Bernama in Bangkok in January, Bukit Aman's Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd disclosed that several of the suspects believed to be involved in the petrol station murder had gone into hiding in Thailand.
