What trespass? Kapar MP offers police recording of mortuary incident

By Neville Spykerman, The Malaysian Insider

S Manikavasagam has offered police a recording on what transpired at the Serdang Hospital on Tuesday, when a mob allegedly barged in and tampered with the body of Kugan Ananthan.

The Kapar Member of Parliament who was summoned to provide a statement on the incident, together with lawyer N Surendran to Sepang police today, said the police were welcomed to have a copy.

“What trespass? The recording will show that the attendant at the mortuary opened the doors for the family who went in first.”

Manikavasagam said the group did not barge or break into the mortuary as claimed by authorities.

“We have the proof to dispute the Government version of what transpired during the incident and we want police to charge a doctor at the hospital who made a false report over the incident.”

The duo were questioned separately today for about 35 minutes by investigating officers.

Tuesday’s incident came in the wake of Kugan’s death while in police custody.

The alleged 22-year-old car thief was arrested five days earlier and recordings of his scarred and bruised body had been widely spread over the internet.
