Aiyoyo…what have we become? Before one murder case is solved, another happens…apa sudah jadi, man? Lets wait and see how this one unfolds…the thing about these murders, it’s not only about the murder that is questionable, the performance of the police force comes into question too. For this one, it’s too soon to tell…
Remember, not too long ago, there was also hot news about a certain minister’s son and a certain ‘high profile sex scandal’ .
Whether true or not (their involvement), our ministers are getting really famous (for all the wrong reasons) these days with all kinds of scandals appearing in the news. Welcome to Bolehwood!
The police are investigating the possibility of foul play in the death of a well-known local Indian actress who was also the former private secretary to the son of a senior cabinet minister.
Contacted today, Sentul district police chief ACP K Kumaran confirmed that his officers were investigating the death of K Sujatha.
“We will be investigating her cause of death and whether there was any foul play, we have not ruled out suicide (either). We’ll then see if a inquest is needed.
“It is still too early to tell what had happened to Sujatha,” he added.
Following her death, a Tamil newspaper had reported that she had died of a ‘mysterious illness’. Her remains have since been cremated.
The 29-year-old actress died in her apartment in Jalan Ipoh, Sentul, on June 25. Her body was later taken to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang for post-mortem.
Kumaran revealed the status of the case when asked to comment on a police report filed by PKR supreme council member S Manickavasagam with the Brickfields district police headquarters this morning.
The report, in relation to the circumstances surrounding Sujatha’s death, was based on a two-page letter he had received via express post from an anonymous person.
The letter was posted from Jelapang, Ipoh, in Perak and addressed to the PKR headquarters in Brickfields.
The letter alleged that the senior cabinet minister’s son was involved in Sujatha’s death and requested the opposition party to pursue the matter.
“Please help us, we are poor people. (The minister) and (his son) are powerful,” read the letter written in broken Bahasa Malaysia, which named the minister and his son.
The letter also implicated Kumaran and accused the Sentul police chief of accepting bribes in order to close the case.
However, Kumaran denied the allegation.
“I have not seen the police report (lodged by Manickavasagam). I only knew about it last night when I received a SMS (short message service) about it.
“Investigations are being carried out. My officers and I have nothing to hide. We’re not scared. I’m concerned why my name is implicated because I know for sure I instructed for a fair investigation to be carried out,” he said.
Kumaran said he will get a copy of Manickavasagam’s police report before considering his next course of action.
Speaking to reporters later, Manickavasagam urged the police to immediately probe the serious allegations raised in the letter.
He also wanted to know why Sujatha’s body was taken to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang when Hospital Kuala Lumpur is located much closer to the deceased’s apartment.
