“No force was applied on him or on any of the other detainees. They were undergoing a standard interrogation process,” he said.
“Standard interrogation process” – this is what I am most afraid to hear from the police force !
I believe the entire police force needs to be dismantled. The first to go must be the Chief Honcho himself. We have not even got a shred of answer about Teo Beng Hock’s “sudden death”, and now here’s another:
KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) July 17 – A suspected drug addict collapsed while having his finger prints recorded at the Narcotics Division of the Sentul Police District Headquarters here today, and died when being rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
Sentul police chief ACP Zakaria Pagan said said R. Gunasegaran, 31, collapsed between 6.45pm and 7pm, and was pronounced dead at 7.40pm at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
A police officer tried to administer first aid but Gunasegaran did not respond, he said.
“After the effort failed, he was sent to Kuala Lumpur Hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival by a medical officer. We believe he died while on the way to the hospital,” he told reporters at his office, here.
Zakaria said a post-mortem revealed that death was caused by drug intoxication, and the case was classified as sudden death. (More here)
What comes to your mind when you read this?
Yeah. It is easy to dismiss Gunasekaran as a “drug addict”. It is easy to classify his death as “sudden”. Again it was a case of “believe” by the Sentul Police Chief.
Who the hell are the police accountable to anyway?!
Who will fight for Gunasekaran? He is neither an Opposition politician nor an MP or state assembly person.
Neither are we. How many more “sudden deaths” in police lock-up, custody or whatever must be hear before the nation actually dies a sudden death itself?
