Police have arrested two gang members on suspicion of murdering a 32-year-old man in an apartment in Tokyo's Okubo district.
According to police, the two suspects, Nozomi Iwase, 32, and Osamu Kato, 40, are members of the Sumiyoshi-kai crime syndicate. Fuji TV quoted police as saying they are accused of killing Takashi Hasegawa, 32.
Police found Hasegawa's body after receiving an anonymous tip at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday. The victim's hands and legs were bound and he had been beaten to death, police said.
Police said the apartment is related to a Sumiyoshi-kai business, and they believe there was some internal conflict between the victim and the two suspects.© Japan Today
