Sosilawati murder: Police Confirm Missing Indian Businessman Murdered

Contributed by Anonymous on Wednesday, September 22 @ 10:36:28 CDT

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 22 (Bernama) -- The police on Wednesday confirmed that an Indian businessman reported missing in Malaysia had been murdered.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the evidence gathered so far into the disappearance of Allal Kathan Muthuraja, 34, early this year indicated that he had been killed.

"I confirm that he was murdered based on the indicators and evidence gathered. As such, we have upgraded the investigation from one of missing person to murder," he said when contacted by Bernama.

Khalid said police were now investigating the case of Muthuraja, who had arrived in Malaysia on Jan 18, under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

The disappearance of Muthuraja has been linked to suspects in the murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three other people in Ladang Gadong near Banting, Selangor.

Sosilawati, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, were killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers in the vicinity of Ladang Gadong after they went missing on Aug 30 following a trip to Banting over a land deal.

Police have picked up eight suspects, among them two lawyers.

Muthuraja's wife, S. Usharani, 24, had lodged a report at the Banting police station on Sept 8 claiming that her husband had disappeared after having met the lawyers upon his arrival at the KL International Airport on Jan 18.

Usharani, who had flown in from India, on Wednesday met the police in Banting over the disappearance of her husband.

She had also gone to have a look at the farm in Ladang Gadong belonging to a suspect in the murder of Sosilawati and three men. She was accompanied by Kapar Member of Parliament S. Manikavasagam.

Manikavasagam and Usharani, who came to the farm at 11.35am, were not allowed to enter the premises by policemen guarding the main entrance.

When approached by reporters, Manikavasagam said he hoped that Muthuraja's family members, especially his father and siblings, would come to Malaysia next week to assist police in verifying the DNA of Muthuraja.

Manikavasagam said that when he accompanied Usharani to a meeting with Kuala Langat district police deputy chief DSP Rizani Ismail, he was informed that police had recovered 300 pieces of bone fragments during the investigation into the murder of Sosilawati and the three men.

News reports had said that the bone fragments were recovered from Sungai Panchau.

Manikavasagam brought Usharani to Sungai Panchau and Sungai Kanchong Laut located about one and two kilometres, respectively, from Ladang Gadong.

He said Usharani was brought to the three places and to meet with the police to learn of the developments in the investigation into the disappearance of her husband.

He also said that Usharani had expressed the intention to remain in Malaysia for a week and that the place of her stay was being kept confidential for her safety.

'I will reveal all on lawyer brothers'

IN PENSIVE MOOD: Usharani stepping out of KLIA this morning — Pic: SALHANI IBRAHIM
Missing Indian businessman A. Muthuraja is now presumed dead. His wife, S. Usharani, 24, said Banting police told her in a meeting this morning the suspects nabbed earlier for the murder of cosmetics queen Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others had confessed to murdering her husband. The suspects were all workers at the farm. Speaking to reporters at the scene of the murders in Ladang Gadong here, Usharani said her husband's parents, along with his younger brother, were expected to come to Malaysia next week to provide DNA samples for comparison with evidence collected from the scene. She, however, declined to reveal how and when her husband was murdered based on the discussion she had with the Banting police. Usharani, upon learning that her husband was dead, also promised she would reveal all on the two lawyer brothers, who are among the murder suspects, at a Press conference tomorrow. She went to the Banting police station to meet Special Branch chief ASP Nor Imran Abdul Rahman soon after arriving at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) this morning. Earlier at the airport, Usharani said she came here to find out the status of the police investigation into her spouse's disappearance. She had lodged a missing person report on Sept 8 but left for Chennai, India, on the same day, claiming to fear for her safety. It was her police report that led the breakthrough into the disappearance of Sosilawati and three others. Speaking to reporters at the airport, Usharani confirmed mentioning the name of the farm in Banting, owned by the lawyer brothers, which she and her husband had visited last December. Both siblings and at least three of the farm workers have been arrested for the murder of Sosilawati and three others, including a lawyer, a banker and her driver. Police had also arrested two more suspects in connection with Muthuraja's disappearance. Usharani's husband, who had several business dealings with the two brothers, had been missing since he came to Malaysia on Jan 18 after receiving a call from one of the brothers. Usharani confirmed the only report she made about her husband in Malaysia was on Sept 8. She did not lodge a missing person report with the Chennai police although she had contacted the Interpol liaison officer there about his disappearance in February. Usharani had also faxed letters and do*****ents about her husband to the Indian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur seeking help to trace him. On reports that her husband has another wife in India, Usharani said she had no knowledge about the other woman and it was more important for her to find out about her husbands fate. Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam, who was at the airport to accompany Usharani to the Banting police station, told reporters they would also try to see Selangor police chief DCP Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar on the matter. "We are also trying to see Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar. It has been 14 days since she lodged the police report, she has the right to know what's going on." Manikavasagam said he was helping Usharani after several politicians in Tamil Nadu, India, contacted him to assist the woman on a humanitarian basis. He said a local NGO and the Indian High Commission would also assist Usharani during her stay here, adding that she was expected to be in the country until Sunday.*****
Sosilawati murder suspects taken to HKL

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010 
DISORDERLY: Onlookers at HKL trying to get a glimpse of the eights suspects (in orange), with some even taking photos from their mobile phones
KUALA LUMPUR: The eight suspects involved in the murders of cosmetics tycoon Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and her associates, were brought to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) today for DNA profiling. The suspects were seen coming down from a police truck around 3pm, escorted by a number of police personnel. They then entered the hospital via its main entrance. It is believed that the suspects were there to have their DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) examined. The usually mundane surrounding at the HKL this afternoon turned chaotic as members of the public tried to get a glimpse of what the suspects look like. After almost two hours, the suspects were then taken back to their lock-up in Bukit Jalil. City CID chief SAC II Datuk Ku Chin Wah could not be reached for comments. Cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, were killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers in the vicinity of Ladang Gadong near Banting, Selangor. All four were reported missing on Aug 30 after they had gone to Banting over a land deal. Police also confirmed that they have not recovered the money that cosmetics queen Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya had taken with her to Banting for the meeting with the lawyer brothers who allegedly masterminded the quadruple murders. CID director Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin said that investigations were still underway to determine if the suspects had taken any money from her. Sosilawati’s daughter, Erni Dekritawati Yuliana Buhari, had claimed that her mother carried a huge amount of cash for the Banting meeting. According to reports, Sosilawati had about RM4 million in cash on her when she made the trip with her lawyer, financial adviser and chauffeur on Aug 30. Various theories abound over what transpired before the four were killed. One version has it that Sosilawati wanted her money back after she learned about alleged fraud involving the land in Penang she had planned to buy. Police picked up the eight suspects after finding out what had happened to the four. Meanwhile, federal CID director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin reported on his Facebook page that the police had received the investigation papers on themurders returned by the Attorney-General's Chambers yesterday. "It is the normal procedure to assist the investigation," he said.******
