The suspect who was detained on the day of the incident was remanded five days until tomorrow.

Jafri said the police would also request for an extension of the remand order of the suspect to facilitate further investigation into the case.

An initial investigation by the police found that the cause of the accident was believed to be due to dissatisfaction at the workplace.
