KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 20 (Bernama) -- DNA analyses to identify victims in criminal cases can be a painstaking process and need time to complete, Chemistry Department director-general N. Hithaya Jeevan said.

He said similar process also took place in analysing samples in the murders of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others.

"We expect that the process can be completed in the near future. However, we cannot provide any time frame when we can hand over the results to the police.


"The time taken to complete the DNA profiling depends on the amount of samples available," he said told Bernama.

Sosilawati, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsuddin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, went missing on Aug 30 after they went to Banting in Selangor over a land deal.

Police found out that the four were killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers near Ladang Gadong, Tanjung Sepat, near Banting.

Police forensic unit found bone fragments and hair samples believed to be connected with the murders and sent them to the Chemistry Department for analysis last week.

Hithaya Jeevan said the department previously handled difficult cases which took them sometime to complete, including the murder Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu and the murder of information technology analyst Canny Ong.

The department has a strength of six forensic experts.

BANTING MURDERS: No raid on Murugiah's house or clinic, say police
2010/09/19




Police stopping people from entering the road leading to the poultry farm in Sungai Gadung, believed to the murder scene.
KUALA LUMPUR: Police yesterday dismissed rumours that the house and clinic of Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk T. Murugiah were raided in connection with investigations into the murders of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and her three aides. Federal Criminal Investigation Department director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin also denied allegations that Murugiah was linked to the murder investigations.

Rumours have been rife that police had raided Murugiah's office in Putrajaya and his family's diabetic centre in Jalan Ipoh on Saturday.
Several text messages were also circulated linking Murugiah to one of the lawyers implicated in the murders.
The text messages allege that the 41-year-old lawyer from Banting had funded Murugiah in politics and had built the diabetic centre for him.

Murugiah rubbished the claims.
"They're all rumours. No such thing happened."

Murugiah said it was impossible that the lawyer had funded his clinic as he had never met the suspect until recently.

He said the only time he met the lawyer was on Sept 8 at a function in Banting where the latter expressed interest in joining MIC.
"He was introduced to me as a 'Datuk', so I just talked to him for awhile. That was it."

Murugiah said the rumours were a political ploy to tarnish his image.

On Friday, Murugiah lodged a police report in Ipoh over an SMS linking him to the lawyer.

When asked if he knew who was out to ruin his reputation, Murugiah said police were investigating and they should have the answers soon.

BANTING: Nine pedigree dogs, belonging to the lawyer brothers from here, were put to sleep by Kuala Langat District Council officers yesterday. Six Rottweilers, two Dalmations and a bulldog were put down by lethal tranquilisers at the poultry farm in Sungai Gadung, believed to the scene of a quadruple murder.

The officers were seen entering the farm at 8.15am and left about two hours later with the carcasses in a pick-up lorry.
According to sources, since the murders were uncovered, the hungry dogs which were left unattended became aggressive and attacked other animals in the farm, such as goats, ducks and chickens.
The source said police had told the district council to catch the dogs but the team despatched to the area decided to put the dogs down as they were aggressive.

The carcasses were taken to the Sungai Sedu landfill in Telok Datuk, near here, to be buried.
Meanwhile, scores of local and foreign tourists on their way to a nearby longan farm and curious onlookers tried to get into the farm where the murders allegedly took place.

They were, however, turned away by policemen.

Longan farm owner Lim Soon Beng, 40, said he had lost thousands of ringgit since the entrance to his 6ha farm was sealed to give way to police investigations.
"I have been losing between RM2,000 and RM3,000 a day as my produce could not be transported out and tourists were stopped from entering the farm."

The two lawyer brothers, aged 41 and 38, from here, and five others were detained to facilitate investigations into the murders of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shansudin, 44, banker Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32.

The four were killed and burnt and their ashes scattered in rivers.

Police have found bone fragments, a cricket bat and a knife after searching the rivers.

The bone fragments have been sent to the Chemistry Department for DNA analysis and the results are expected this week.

Sosilawati, the founder of the Nouvelles Visages beauty line, and her three aides were believed to have met one of the lawyers before they disappeared on Aug 30.

They were allegedly murdered at the farm belonging to the lawyer. The farm has, among others, a clubhouse, chalet and an office.

Two teams are carrying out the investigations, one on the quadruple murder and the other on the disappearance of three people and the murder of a housewife.
****The StarMonday September 20, 2010 Man wanted to end ties with lawyer brothers
KLANG: Indian millionaire A. Muthuraja was slowly distancing himself from the two lawyer brothers implicated in the Datuk Sosila­wati Lawiya murder when he went missing, said his second wife S. Usharani. She said her husband had told her that he was not comfortable being around them anymore. “I asked him why he wanted to end his long friendship with the brothers and he told me it was the right thing to do. He also said that he now had a child to worry about,’’ said Usharani when contacted in Chennai. Usharani said Muthuraja did not give details on this but merely said he did not like some of the things that were going on. Muthuraja disappeared on Jan 18 after coming to Malaysia to see the two brothers. They had apparently insisted he came down for at least one day. Meanwhile, journalists in India who have been going all-out to unravel the mystery behind Muthu­raja’s disappearance said the brothers had business links in India. “They have very strong links with important people and politicians here,’’ said Chennai-based Sun TV special correspondent Rama Selva­raj. Another Chennai-based journalist, who declined to be named, said it is also believed that the brothers had substantial properties in the Namakkal district in Tamil Nadu. One of the brother’s wife, a qualified medical doctor, is from Namak­kal and goes by a different name in Malaysia, said the journalist. It is believed that the woman had been practising medicine illegally in Malaysia and the brothers also own a clinic in Banting. Coincidentally, the woman’s father had also been reported missing for the last eight years. “He took a train from Salem to Chennai and was never seen after that. Given the current turn of events, everyone here is speculating that his disappearance could also be linked to the lawyers,’’ said the journalist.*****The Staronday September 20, 2010 Millionaire ‘gold digger’ Reports by WANI MUTHIAH, LOH FOON FONG, STEVEN DANIEL, FARIK ZOLKEPLI, M. SIVANANTHA SHARMA and TAN SIN CHOW

KLANG: A full-fledged catfight is threatening to explode between missing Indian millionaire A. Muthuraja’s two wives with both accusing each other of only wanting their husband’s assets. His first wife, teacher M. Rama­lakshmi accused his other wife S. Usharani of having married Muthu­raja for his money. “She’s always talking about money and property when interviewed by the media,” said Ramalakshmi. Usharani, meanwhile, criticised Ramalakshmi for only speaking up now instead of when their husband first disappeared. Muthuraja went missing after meeting the two lawyer brothers who are the main suspects in the murder of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others. “Where was she all this while?” Usharani said, adding that she was feeling lost without Muthuraja. However, Ramalakshmi said she only knew her husband was missing and had another wife recently. “No one told me anything,’’ said Ramalakshmi, adding that she was estranged from her husband because his family believed she had brought him bad luck. Both Ramalakshmi and Usharani, who spoke in a telephone interview from Tirunelveli and Chennai, Tamil Nadu, respectively also said that they were prepared to come to Malaysia to look for Muthuraja. “I am looking for a safe place for my daughter to live in before coming to Malaysia to talk to the police,” said Usharani. She added that she would also be seeing Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam who has promised to help her. Ramalakshmi said she would be willing to come to Malaysia, too. “I am a simple village girl and may not be able to face the challenges alone,” she added. When contacted, Manikavasagam confirmed he would be meeting Usharani when she comes to Malay­sia. “I’ll be speaking with her to see how we can help her,” he said.*******The StarSosilawati murder: DNA analyses take time, says chemist
