A Japanese man in his 30s was arrested Friday on suspicion of abandoning the bodies of two Chinese nationals close to Tokyo, local police said.

Two bodies were found stuffed inside suitcases abandoned in a mountainous forest near Tokyo on July 13. The bodies were later confirmed to be those of a pair of Chinese sisters living in Yokohama who went missing earlier in the month.

Police has suspected the involvement of a man in his 30s based on footage obtained from surveillance cameras near the condominium where the two women lived.

The Chinese embassy here has launched an emergency mechanism and met with Japanese police, requesting a full scale search since the women were reported missing.

The embassy said it will continue to closely follow the development of the case and provide assistance for the relatives.
