They were suspects in a brutal killing which happened at a petrol station along Jalan Sri Pelangi here on the night of Dec 17.
Magistrate Nor Aisyah Ahmad granted the remand until Dec 27.
The body of the victim, killed over a dispute between two secret societies, has been taken to Malacca for burial after being placed at the Nirvana Memorial Centre in Jalan Skudai here for three days.
A check found that his family members arrived as early as 8am today at the Nirvana Memorial Centre before the body was taken into a Mercedez E250 CGI vehicle at about 9.50am.
