Several police forensic vehicles were also seen leaving the farm,
marking the end of the day's operation, which is in its third day
The media could only sneak a peek through the farm's wooden gates earlier today
The suspects linked to the gruesome murder of cosmetics millionaire
Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and her three associates, were initially brought
to the farm by police around 11.10am to help investigate the discovery
of two graves — one of it believed to be Mohd Shafik's.
Reporters and photographers who were gathered in front of the
compound's door since 9am this morning were asked by the authorities to
leave the place immediately, right after the suspects and forensic team
entered the compound.
Despite several attempts by Pressmen to penetrate the place using other paths, they were immediately blocked by police.
Kuala Langat district police chief, Supt Nordin Manan, then issued
the order to forbid Pressmen from getting near the compound to prevent
jeopardising police investigation and operation.
It is believed that the operation might resume tomorrow.
Meanwhile, S. Usharani, 24, the second wife of missing Indian
millionaire, A. Muthuraja, has been called by police to give her
statement at Kuala Langat police headquarters. She was seen entering the
police headquarters at around 1.45pm.
Police had called her in to facilitate investigations on her husband's mysterious disappearance since last January.
