The Gurkha contingent and the K9 unit arrived after 11am.

The body, according to an eyewitness, was half dressed in the drain.

A pool of blood was seen near the canal where the body was found.

The last time the Gurkha contingent was deployed was in a January 2022 case when a man allegedly killed his twin sons and dumped their bodies in a canal in Upper Bukit Timah.

The Gurkhas were spotted combing the site near the canal where the two boys were found.
