The 33-year-old’s personal assistant, Tyrese Devon Haspil, 21, is expected to be charged for Fahim’s murder.
Several news outlets reported the possible murder charges including the New York Times, NBC’s New York TV Station, the New York Daily News, and the New York Post.
Fahim’s luxury New York condo on the Lower East Side was the site of his grizzly murder including his own decapitation.
A spokesman for the New York Police Department disputed the report.
"Last I was told, we don't have anyone in custody," police spokesman Sergeant Vincent Marchese said by phone.
"There is no arrest. I don't know where they're getting the information from," said Vincent.
Saleh earlier this week died of multiple stab wounds to the neck and torso, the New York City medical examiner said.
His body was discovered in his apartment on Tuesday afternoon.
His body had been decapitated and dismembered, the parts placed into separate plastic garbage bags.
A power saw and cleaning supplies were found plugged in nearby.
Security camera video showed Saleh in his apartment building’s elevator with a man in a dark suit, mask, and gloves, the media reports said.
Video footage showed the suspect following Saleh into the seventh-story apartment, where a struggle began.
Saleh, who was born in Saudi Arabia to Bangladeshi parents and grew up in New York, founded the Pathao ride company in 2015 and in 2018 the Gokada motorbike hailing app.
Gokada was widely used in the Nigerian megacity of Lagos until state officials in February banned motorcycle taxis, known locally as okada, dealing a serious blow to the company.
