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