‘Probe to go on despite suspect’s release’
KOTA TINGGI: Investigations into the death of Mohamad Thaqif Amin Mohd Gadaffi, 11, who was allegedly beaten by an assistant warden, 29, at his tahfiz school, will continue despite the release of the suspect on a RM20,000 court bond yesterday.
Johor Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Kamarul Zaman Mamat said there would be no let-up in the probe and that investigators were waiting for the results of the post-mortem.
Yesterday, the suspect, who had been detained since April 22, was taken to the Sessions Court here at the end of his remand period.
He was released on a RM20,000 bond after Sessions Court judge Salawati Djambari allowed an application by Kota Tinggi Criminal Investigation Department chief Assistant Superintendent Mohd Fairos Ithnin.
He was released under Section 118 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
Present was the suspect’s older brother.
