CPF chairperson, Nazir Sadack says they are concerned. 

"We expect to be trusted and protected by somebody close to you, and that particular person goes and does the alleged murder."

"People are very shocked - they are concerned. As the CPF, we are also concerned because domestic violence shouldn't be taken lightly."

The suspect is due to appear in court on Tuesday.
