KUALA LUMPUR: The wife of murdered contractor S. Sivanathan and one of his workers have been detained by police for questioning. Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner II Hasnan Hassan, when contacted, confirmed that R. Kavita, 31, and another man had been picked up.

Police believe the duo can assist in investigations into the brutal slaying of Sivanathan, 31, in his bedroom in Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2, Klang, on Feb 22.

Hasnan, however, declined to give details.

It is learnt that police are looking for two other men in connection with the killing.
Sivanathan was asleep when three men walked into his house and slashed him on the neck, legs and hands at 9.15am.

Kavita had earlier said she had opened the front gate to drive to the market when her 3-year-old daughter started crying and insisted on following her.

As she alighted from the car and went into the house to get her daughter, three men brandishing parang walked into the house.

The men herded mother and child into one of the rooms downstairs and told them to be silent.

She had said she waited for several minutes and when there were no more movements in the house, she opened the room door and dashed out of the house to scream for help.

Several neighbours climbed on the roof of the porch and broke one of the windows of the master bedroom.

Sivanathan was found in a pool of blood on the bed, barely moving.

He was rushed to hospital where he died in the intensive care unit due to blood loss.

Detained wife a 'victim of abuse' By : By V. Shankar Ganesh

KLANG: R. Kavita, who was arrested in connection with the death of her husband, was a victim of wife abuse. District police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Mat Yusop said Kavita, 31, had lodged a police report in May last year after a severe beating.

However, police did not file any charges against her husband, S. Sivananthan, also 31.

On Feb 22, Sivanathan was hacked to death by three men at 9.15am while he was asleep at his house in Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2 here.

Kavita had told police the men rushed in after she had left the front gate open to pick up her 3-year-old daughter, who wanted to follow her to the market.
Mohamad said police had arrested eight people, including Kavita, in connection with the murder.

All were brought to the Klang magistrate's court and remanded yesterday.

It is learned that two of the detained men are Sivananthan's workers.

Mohamad said police believed hired killers were involved in the murder.


According to Makkal Osai 05/03/2009, Kavitha, wife of the murdered contractor Sivanathan initially paid RM 25,000 to kill her husband but the person reneged. Later she paid RM 50,000 to a different person who finished the job.
