‘Four-wheel drive used to ram vic­tim’s car’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS - BY S. TAMARAI CHELVI

KUALA LUMPUR: One of the seven ac­cused ad­mit­ted to driv­ing a four-wheel drive ve­hi­cle and in­ten­tion­ally ram­ming it against the car of deputy pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor Datuk Kevin Mo­rais, a po­lice­man told the High Court yes­ter­day.

ASP Badrul Hisyam Abd Hamid, 34, who is at­tached with Bukit Aman’s Spe­cial Task Force on Or­gan­ised Crime, said S. Ni­malan told him dur­ing in­ter­ro­ga­tion that he drove a Mit­subishi Tri­ton to ram into Mo­rais’ car.

“The sixth ac­cused (Ni­malan) in­formed me that he drove the Tri­ton and rammed Mo­rais’ car from the back and that he was in­structed to do so by the sev­enth ac­cused (S. Ravi Chan­dran),” he said.

Dur­ing re-ex­am­i­na­tion by DPP Wan Sha­harud­din Wan Ladin, Badrul Hisyam tes­ti­fied that Ni­malan in­formed him about the oil drum dur­ing their jour­ney from Kedah to Kuala Lumpur.

At the Subang Jaya po­lice head­quar­ters, Badrul Hisyam said Ni­malan dis­closed that he could show the lo­ca­tion of the oil drum at the Subang Jaya area.

Another wit­ness, ASP Ab­dul Ha­nis Hairul Ab­dul Halim, 33, said Chan­dran, whom he iden­ti­fied in court, showed him a black Tri­ton in Lu­nas, Kulim.

Ab­dul Ha­nis said on Sept 18 last year, he went to Sun­gai Kuala Se­lan­gor bridge with Chan­dran and other po­lice­men, where Chan­dran in­formed them he had thrown items into the river from that lo­ca­tion.

“The in­for­ma­tion was gained from Chan­dran dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion at Kuala Muda po­lice head­quar­ters,” he added.

On Sept 19, 2015, he said a “grinder” was dis­cov­ered from the bot­tom of the river which was pro­duced in court as ev­i­dence.

G. Gu­nasekaran, 48, R. Din­ish­waran, 24, A. K. Thi­nesh Ku­mar, 23, M. Vish­wanath, 26, Ni­malan, 23, and Chan­daran, 35, had claimed trial to mur­der charges, while Dr R. Ku­nasee­garan, 53, claimed trial to abet­ting the mur­der.
