KEEPING MUM: The wives of the two lawyer brothers as they briskly made their way into the police headquarters this afternoon — Pics: Ashraf Shamsul Azlan
KUALA LUMPUR: The two lawyer brothers implicated in eight murders, including the recent quadruple Banting killings, met with their wives today at the city police headquarters. The women spent 10 minutes with their husbands in a room where 12 police personnel were present at 3pm. Lawyers D.P. Vijandran and Ravi Nekoo were then allowed to see the suspects for another 10 minutes.

Vijandran later told reporters that the elder lawyer brother – the main suspect – claimed he was punched, kicked and beaten with a hose.
DON'T PRE-JUDGE: Vijandran (right) and Ravi said media reports have been 'one-sided'
He said the 41-year-old suspect’s front tooth was also loose as a result of the alleged beatings. Further, he claimed, the main suspect told him that police had forced him to sign do*****ents and letters at certain places. Vijandran said he would be lodging a police report on the matter tomorrow. He added that the suspect's wish was to get a chance to tell his side of the story as the media was reporting “one side only”. According to Vijandran, the younger brother, 38, was “ok and not beaten by police.” Vijandran urged the media and public not to pre-judge the suspects who claimed they were innocent. He said everybody had this feeling that they were guilty and hoped they would hold back their judgment. Vijandran said for the moment, he was making sure the brothers got their rights and were treated fairly. Both lawyers hoped to see their clients again if their remand order was extended. The remand period for the brothers and another suspect ends on Saturday. Five others, in their 20s and 30s, believed to be involved in the murder of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and her three aides, today had their remand order extended by another week to Sept 29. The Attorney-General on Wednesday had ordered the police to investigate further the murders of Sosilawati and the other three. Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail had returned the investigation papers to the police as there were many issues pertaining to the case that needed further investigation. Police are also digging deeper into the three reports of missing persons that have now been upgraded to murder inquiry, as well as the murder of a housewife outside her home in Banting.******The StarSosilawati murder: Main suspect claims cops assaulted him By STEVEN DANIEL
Wives, lawyers get to meet brothers KUALA LUMPUR: The main suspect in the murders of Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others is claiming that he was punched, kicked and forced to sign do*****ents against his will by the police. Three lawyers representing the suspect and his brother, both lawyers, managed to meet their clients for the first time at the city police headquarters here Thursday. They arrived at 3pm and were accompanied by the wives of the suspects who were also granted permission to meet their husbands. Lawyer D.P. Vijandran and Ravi Nekoo, speaking to the press after the 30-minute meeting, said the 41-year-old suspect claimed he had been abused by the police. "He claimed he was beaten with a hose, punched in the face and kicked, which aggravated an old spinal injury," Vijandran said, adding that his client has yet to receive medical treatment for his injuries. The main suspect also claimed he was forced to sign do*****ents against his will. Vijandran said they would be lodging a police report on the alleged abuse Friday. "My clients claim they have nothing to do with what (the murders) they are being investigated for and that they are innocent. "Nonetheless, they are willing to give their full cooperation to the police but hope to be treated fairly at the same time," Vijandran said. Meanwhile, the wives managed to meet their husbands for about 10 minutes, under the watchful eyes of the police. "They were not allowed to get close to each other. The wives were very calm and dignified during the meeting," he added. Sosilawati, 47, and three others — lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and driver Kamarudin Shansudin, 44, went missing on Aug 30. Their remains were later found in Ladang Gadong, near Banting. Eight suspects have been detained, among them, the two lawyer brothers.*****Usharani reveals recorded phone conversation
KLANG: S. Usharani, 27, the wife of an Indian millionaire businessman who has gone missing in Malaysia, today revealed to the media a recorded telephone conversation she has had with a lawyer who is a suspect in the co-called Banting murders. Usharani played the two-minute telephone conversation recorded on her mobile telephone at a news conference held at the office of Kapar Member of Parliament S. Manikavasagam in Kapar near here.

The conversation, in Tamil and explained to reporters by lawyer Y. Murugan, was about Usharani's enquiries about the whereabouts of her husband, Allal Kanthan Muthuraja, 35.
Usharani said that during the conversation on Jan 28, the suspect claimed that he was in Thailand and would only be able to relate the whereabouts of her husband once he got back from there.
Reporters also listened to another recording, this time between Usharani and a man who claimed to be one ASP Suresh from the Bukit Aman federal police headquarters.

"ASP Suresh demanded RM1 million to free my husband because he claimed he (my husband) had been arrested for smuggling ketamine into the country," she said.
Usharani, who had flown in from Chennai, India, yesterday, also said she had received a similar telephone call from a man who claimed to be one Inspector Muru from Bukit Aman.

Meanwhile, Manikavasagam said Usharani would hand over the recording to Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar tomorrow, at about 11.30am.

The Banting murders refer to the deaths of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, who went missing on Aug 30 after they went to Banting, Selangor, over a land deal.
Police found out that the four had been killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers in the vicinity of Ladang Gadong near Banting, and picked up eight suspects, two of them lawyers, to facilitate investigations.

Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said yesterday the police had upgraded the investigation into Muthuraja's case from missing person to murder based on indicators and evidence gathered so far.

Usharani had lodged a report at the Banting police station on Sept 8 that Muthuraja went missing after he had arrived in Malaysia on Jan 18.
She also went to the Kuala Langat district police headquarters today to give a statement. --


Prime suspect of Banting murders brought to canal again

BANTING: A man believed to be the prime suspect in the so-called Banting murders was brought today to a canal near here, for the second time, apparently to help police look for more evidence relating to the case. A police forensic team was seen taking the suspect, clad in purple-coloured lockup attire and handcuffed, to the canal connecting to Kampung Sungai Lang at about 10.30am.

They were seen leaving the location two-and-a-half hours later, apparently without having found any object or evidence.
Two days ago, the suspect was also brought to the same location.
The suspect and seven others are helping police to solve the murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, and lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, who were reported missing on Aug 30 after coming here over a land deal.

Police said the four were killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers in the vicinity of Ladang Gadong near here. -- BERNAMA
