The suspect reportedly threatened to kill the victim’s younger sister if she will not give in to his demand.

The victim decided to seek police help and the MPD-Station 13 laid out an entrapment operation.

The police contacted the suspect via social media and arranged a meet up at the Baseco Compound where he was arrested.

According to the police, Singh had said that he did what he did because he always gets rejected by his love prospects, adding that he did not mean to harm moreso kill anyone and that his threats were empty.
