'Probe case of man who died in police custody'
PETALING JAYA (Jan 22, 2009): Opposition MPs and other political leaders gathered outside the Subang Jaya district police headquarters yesterday calling for a thorough probe into the death of a 22-year-old car theft suspect in police custody on Tuesday.
About 100 people including the family members of the dead man Kugan Ananthan, Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam, Puchong MP Gobind Singh, Teluk Intan MP. M. Manoharan, Keadilan’s Selangor Youth leader Khairul Anuar Ahmad Zainuddin, MIC Youth Leader T. Mohan and Police Watch and Human Rights committee head S. Jayathas arrived at the headquarters at 3.30pm to lodge a report. The supporters carried banners which bore the pictures of Kugan’s body taken at Serdang Hospital.
The photos showed bruises, swells, cuts and abrasions all over the body and froth oozing from the mouth and nose.
“It is the most brutal and horrific case of police brutality I have ever seen. It appears that not an inch of his body had been spared. I urge the federal police to immediately probe the death of this young man. His family is seeking justice and those responsible must face the law,” said lawyer N. Surenthiran, who is representing Kugan’s family.
Three police reports were lodged by the deceased’s family, Manikavasagam and Khairul calling for the incident to be probed.
Manikavasagam said there are two witnesses to the assault on Kugan who are willing to come forward to reveal what they saw.
“It was the first time he had ever been detained by police and he came out dead. We were never told where he was being held. We looked for him everywhere since his arrest on Jan 15 but the police only informed us on Tuesday that he had died,” said Kugan’s mother, N. Indra.
She said her son did not suffer from asthma as claimed by police.
Just a personal opinion on the above asthma assertion......
judging from the frothy discharge from the mouth,
bloody discharge from nose,
the assertion that he had breathing difficulties
and fluid in his lungs - my guess is,
the victim probably died of "Acute Pulmonary Oedema"/ "Cardiac Asthma".
So, "technically speaking, the Police authorities may have been correct in saying that he died of "asthma"
- though in this case, it was "Cardiac", and not the regular "Bronchial" asthma
One can only wonder what could have precipitated such a condition,
in a previously healthy 22 year old man ....
Now, let's just compare the above with the report in TheStarOnline

Dead detainee: Cops to question two deputy ministers PETALING JAYA: Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said police would record the statements of two deputy ministers in connection with the morgue incident in which the body of A. Kugan, who died in detention, was tampered with. .....
Kugan, who was detained on Jan 15 on suspicion of being involved in stealing luxury cars in Sungai Chua, Kajang, and was brought to the Taipan police station on Tuesday where he suddenly collapsed and died while being questioned.
He had asked for a glass of water and threw up after drinking, then collapsed. The policemen present immediately summoned a doctor from a nearby clinic to examine Kugan, who was pronounced dead minutes later.
================================All I can say is, that the water in Subang Jaya is truly potent stuff!
I wonder who was the "Bomoh" who did the "baca-baca" before giving Kugan the water.....
..... maybe I'll ask my Bomoh about these "miraculous Subang Jaya water" things.
But then again, surely Khalid can do a better job than my bomoh, right?
Who wouldn't have confidence in "somebody's" words - after all, he's the one who "protects children" by providing them shelter from rain & shine (or was it by denying them that? Sorry- their statements get me a little mixed up at times). He Protects PJ residents & Malaysians at large, by getting peaceful citizens & priests arrested for taking part in peaceful gatherings, deemed illegal for not supporting a police state.
Anyway, Who wouldn't have faith in someone who denies photographic/movie evidence, right?
Did anyone notice the very strange silence of the BBC/ BN MPs? Interesting isn't it?
Is it becos death doesn't move BN MPs anymore - whether it is due to C4, National Service, "Water", Helicopters or whatever?
Some may even be brought conclude there is a "lager agenda" at work - that it is the intentional desire to create discontent & rebellion, so as bring about "agitation" and imposition of repression!!
But I'm sure BN wouldn't do such things, right?
There are there to defend the rakyat! Just ask Najib or Samy Velu - they'll tell you that with a straight face.
Nobody will dispute this, right?
Psst Mr. Bomoh- there may be some people who should be given "Subang Jaya water"?
Then we don't need the noisy C4 anymore, maah ...
