‘Mo­rais put ex­tra charges on Ku­nasee­garan’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor Datuk An­thony Kevin Mo­rais added two ad­di­tional charges against Col Dr R. Ku­nasee­garan at the ses­sions court in Shah Alam, Se­lan­gor, re­vealed DPP Savin­der Singh Jug­in­dar Singh, 27, in the High Court.

He said this at the mur­der trial of Kevin Mo­rais in which Ku­nasee­garan is the first ac­cused.

“Ku­nasee­garan ini­tially faced one charge un­der Sec­tion 168 of the Pe­nal Code; Kevin Mo­rais submitted two more charges against him un­der the same Sec­tion mak­ing it three charges,” said the 46th prose­cu­tion wit­ness.

Savin­der, who is now based at the At­tor­ney-Gen­eral’s Cham­bers in Kedah said the ad­di­tional charges on Ku­nasee­garan were submitted on June 22, 2015.

Dur­ing ex­am­i­na­tion in-chief by DPP Sai­ful Edris Zain­ud­din at the trial which en­tered its 31st day, Savin­der said he saw Ku­nasee­garan talk­ing with a few In­dian men af­ter the pro­ceed­ings.

Ku­nasee­garan, said the wit­ness, was usu­ally ac­com­pa­nied by four men each time he ar­rived at the Shah Alam ses­sions court.

How­ever, he told the court, he could only see two of the four men, that is, sec­ond ac­cused G. Gu­nasekaran and sev­enth ac­cused S. Ravi Chan­daran among the ac­cused in the dock.

To a ques­tion from Sai­ful Edris as to his last con­tact with Kevin Mo­rais, the wit­ness said he met him on Sept 2 last year at the At­tor­ney-Gen­eral’s Cham­bers in Pu­tra­jaya, two days be­fore Kevin Mo­rais was re­ported miss­ing.

“My last con­tact with Kevin Mo­rais was on Sept 4 at 12.30am when I re­ceived an as­sign­ment email from him re­gard­ing a case in Jo­hor Baru.

“He re­quested me to down­load the doc­u­ments at­tached with the email and bring them on the morn­ing of Sept 4, 2015 but that day Kevin Mo­rais did not ar­rive at the of­fice and could not be con­tacted,” he said.

Six men – Gu­nasekaran, 48, R. Din­ish­waran, 24, A.K. Thi­nesh Ku­mar, 23, M. Vish­wanath, 26, S. Ni­malan, and Ravi Chan­daran, 45, are fac­ing a charge of killing Kevin Mo­rais be­tween 7am and 8pm on Sept 4 last year be­tween Jalan Du­ta­mas Raya Sen­tul and No. 1 Jalan USJ1/6D, Subang Jaya.
