The driver who is suspected of causing the death of 31-year-old Wan Amirah Wan Alias in Cyberjaya on 17 October has been arrested

The driver is among four people who were arrested by Sepang police around 12am today, 19 October.

Wan Amirah, who worked as an assistant manager with a telecommunications company, was hit by a reckless driver in Shaftsbury Square despite attempts to avoid the car.

The victim was dragged a few metres before she was ultimately run over by the car. She later entered into a coma and passed away at Hospital Putrajaya yesterday, 18 October.

The three Middle Eastern men and one local woman were arrested in different parts of Putrajaya and have been remanded for four days

Sepang police chief Assistant Commissioner Abdul Aziz Ali said the first arrest was made on a 22-year old Yemeni man in Pusat Bandar Putra Permai, Seri Kembangan, according to Malay Mail.

Later on, police arrested two Libyan men aged 24 and 20, and a 32-year-old woman from Sabah at Verdi Residence in Symphony Hills, Cyberjaya.

"All those arrested were students at an international university in Cyberjaya and one of the men arrested confessed to driving the Hyundai involved in the accident," Abdul Aziz said.

The silver-coloured Hyundai which was used in the incident has also been impounded.

According to Wan Amirah's friend, Suhaili Yahaya, the driver had been "furious" that he was not allowed to park his car in the shopping area

"According to the security guard, the driver is a foreigner and his accent suggests that he may have come from the Middle East," Suhaili had told News Straits Times.
