POLICE are now searching for a man wanted in connection for the murder of an Asian businessman in the early hours of Sunday last week.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro confirmed police were searching for Wang Gan Jang and wanted to bring him in for questioning in relation to the murder.

She said police believed Wang Gan Jang, 26, was being accompanied by two other male Asian nationals.

"The police are appealing to members of the public to contact the nearest police station or community post or call 919 or 917 if they know of their location," Ms Naisoro said.

Police have remained tight-lipped about the progress of their investigation but what is known is that the victim was stabbed several times in the back as he got into his vehicle around 2:30am last Sunday.

The man was rushed to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva where he died from excessive blood loss.

Police maintain three men were involved in the killing.
