DAP would lodge a police report over the latest revelation by carpet businessman Deepak Jaikishan that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor were involved in the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shariibuu.

In his opening address at the 16th DAP National Congress today, DAP national chairman Karpal Singh said he would lodge a police report on the matter after the proceedings today.

“What Deepak said has substance. There must be a fresh police investigation on the matter. So I am lodging a report to enable that,” he said.

He said albeit it was wrong for Deepak to conceal the truth for the past two years, it is more important for the murderer to be brought to justice.

“If the PM is involved (in the murder), then he must answer,” he said.

Deepak has alleged receiving a call from Rosmah on the day private investigator P. Balasubramaniam disclosed a statutory declaration linking Najib to the Altantuya’s murder.

He claimed that he managed to contact Balasubraminiam later and arranged for him to make the second SD reversing the first one.
