“If the father can jump 8 feet, the son will jump 16 feet” , is an old Tamil proverb that turned out to be correct in the case of Pathmanaban, the prime suspect in the murder case of cosmetics millionaire Sosilawati Lawiya, her driver Kamaruddin shamsudin, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad.

The brothers, Pathmanaban and Surinder, learned the ‘Land Scam’ and ‘Ah long’ (money lending) trade from their father Nalliyanan (not sure of the spelling).
According to sources, Nalliyanan was a big time con-man in Banting, Selangor, running his business under ‘Nalli Finance’.
Also, he had a rice dealership license.
He had cultivated strong political connections with several top MIC politicians, including former MIC deputy president S Subramaniam, Sangaran Gopal, Klang Businessman Saminathan and others.
With these connections and having an added advantage of being a ‘Konggu Gounder caste, Nalliyanan received special treatments for his Land Scam deals from NESA, a cooperative society founded by MIC and currently headed by S
NESA approved loans beyond the real value of the land.
Since NESA took an injunction against Maika Holdings to stop the sale of its insurance arm owing to irregularities in the deal, NESA is morally obliged to explain if there were any irregularities in the loan approval to their clan and their nexus with Nalliyanan in land deals.
Nalliyanan has been implicated in several other cheating and misappropriation cases. One of them is the misappropriation of Banting Pillayar Hindu temple funds.
The case is pending in court.
The family lived a luxurious life from the wealth amassed. Some of the looted money was at least used for his children education.
Pathmanaban and Surinder studied law in Bond University, Australia, where else, the daughter, currently a practicing gynecologist, went to a medical school in England.
Father thought the kids to jump 6 feet but the brothers jumped 16 feet.
“Outwardly, the brothers lived like Jamindhars but actually they lived like Pannayars”, said a businessman familiar with the case.
In essence, Pathmanaban did some charitable work defending foreign workers rights. Many describe him to be humble and ever ready to help the needy.
But those who know him well think otherwise.
“He has high temper and ever ready to punish those who cross his line like a Pannayar”.
Pathmanaban is married to an engineering graduate who is a lecturer at a Community College in Banting but were living separately, the last few months.
Though Pathmanaban received huge publicity from the media and has been branded as the mastermind, the younger
brother Surendran, a shrewd man carrying out all the dirty work behind the scene, received little attention.
Surendran, an auditor, accountant turned lawyer, is married to a medical doctor from India. She works in Putrajaya.
So far, Padmanaban’s sister has not been implicated in any of the brothers land scam, money lending and money laundering activities.
However, she had an extravagant wedding reception at KL convention center where the police provided VVIP escort. Why such
a treatment for an ordinary citizen?
And, the family seems to own nearly 15 luxury cars.
Supramaniapuram was a box office Tamil movie in recent times directed by relatively a new director. The movie portrays how ordinary street thieves are manipulated by the rich to commit cold blooded murders.
Likewise, Padmanaban and Surindran manipulated the young ordinary criminals to commit heinous crimes.
Certainly, the brothers jumped much further then the father.
