Family sues Malaysian Govt and Cops for RM100mil

Yesterday, A mother of the suspected car thief who died in police custody a couple years ago is suing the government and police for a whopping RM$100 million.

N. Indra, 44, is seeking damages in all forms possible from damages arising from alleged negligence, breach of statutory rights on part of defendant, assault and battery, false imprisonment and wrong use of public office.

She filed the suit through her counsel N. Surendran at the High Court civil registry here yesterday. Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam accompanied them.

Her son, Kugan from Puchong was arrested on Jan 14, 2009, who was then held in custody where he died 6 days later.

The Malaysian MP who accompanied the victim’s mum told reporters the family was filing the suit as nobody was convicted during the trial of Kugan’s case and neither had the Government apologised to the family although the death happened while in police custody.

Navindran had faced two counts of causing grievous hurt to Kugan at an interrogation room at the Taipan police station in Subang Jaya at 7am on Jan 16, 2009.

However, the constable was discharged and acquitted on Jan 27 last year after the prose­cution failed to establish a prima facie case against him.
