Other than an electric saw, a bow saw was also involved in the case, reported Shin Min Daily News.

After buying an electric saw from Mustafa Centre, the suspects allegedly went to a hardware shop at Kampong Kapor Road to buy a 24-inch bow saw, the Chinese evening daily said.

The electric saw was eventually found in the same suitcase holding the severed legs in the Muslim Cemetery at Jalan Kubor.

Lianhe Wanbao reported that the electric saw was clean and appeared unused.

It is not known if or how the bow saw was recovered.
