HIGH-SECURITY: Police have been keeping a close watch on the poultry farm ever since two 'graves' were discovered there — Pics: Samsul Said
BANTING: The excavation process at a poultry farm in Ladang Gadong, Tanjung Sepat, to scout for new evidence linked to missing businessman Mohd Shafik Abdullah, 37, from Sungai Petani, Kedah, and his unidentified friend, was ceased as of 3.30pm today. Clad in orange lock-up uniforms, four of the eight suspects were brought back in a police van while being heavily guarded by police.

Several police forensic vehicles were also seen leaving the farm, marking the end of the day's operation, which is in its third day running.

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.

Monday September 27, 2010 Trader took advantage of our desperation, says Muthuraja’s brother By WANI MUTHIAH
KLANG: Unscrupulous people are believed to have taken advantage of the desperation faced by the family of Indian millionaire A. Muthuraja to cheat them. Muthuraja’s youngest brother Dr Kasi Viswanathan said a family friend had put him into contact with an Indian businessman in Chennai who had lived in Malaysia for 13 years and had many contacts here. Dr Kasi said when he met the businessman, he was promised that Muthuraja would be back “within the next 48 hours”. “However, soon after that, the businessman told me his Malaysian contacts were doing ground and field work to locate Muthuraja,” he said. Dr Kasi claimed that at the end of January, the businessman had also put him on the phone with a Malaysian “politician”, whom he addressed as “YB”. Dr Kasi said the politician had assured him that the job could be done easily as he had “top contacts”. “Initially, there was no mention of money but the Indian businessman started demanding for it. We paid him in stages, beginning with RM30,000,” he said, alleging that both men had told him that Muthuraja was “well and under police custody”. He said the men called him in the second week of March to tell him to come to Malaysia as soon as possible because Muthuraja had been located. After paying another RM10,000 to the businessman, Dr Kasi claimed that he was told Muthuraja was with “one Elil”, whom he had met through his brother in Chennai in July last year. Dr Kasi said the businessman had also told him the politician was “unhappy” after he turned down his suggestion to engage the “services” of some underworld people to deal with Elil. He said after meeting Elil at a hotel in Klang, he paid him RM60,000 out of the RM80,000 he demanded. “I was told by Elil that they would bring my brother to the airport and put him on the same flight with me on March 24. I went to the airport but both Elil and my brother were nowhere to be seen. “However, Elil was on the phone with me until the plane took off,” he said, adding that Elil had claimed that there were “some problems” and Muthuraja would be on his way back to Chennai after that. Dr Kasi added that he had also visited one of the lawyer brothers implicated in cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya’s murder, who then took him to lodge a missing person report at the Klang district police station. “The police asked me to invite Elil for a meal so that they could ambush him but he did not come,” said Dr Kasi Viswanathan. ****** Wife of missing Indian businessman gives cops more information By A. RUBAN
BANTING: The second wife of missing Indian businessman A. Muthuraja provided police with more information about her husband, at the Kuala Langat police headquarters here Monday. S. Usharani, who was accompanied by Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam, was seen entering the police headquarters at 1.45pm and left five hours later. Manikavasagam said Usharani's statement was suppose to be recorded on Sunday but was put off to Monday. "The process was postponed because the police officer in-charge of recording her (Usharani) statement was busy yesterday (Sunday)," he said. Manikavasagam told reporters that Usharani was still hoping for the safe of her husband. He said Usharani also wanted the Indian High Commission in Malaysia to do something about the disappearance of her husband. Usharani had reported her husband's disappearance to the high commision eight months ago, he added. Manikavasagam added that Usharani would be returning to Chennai on Wednesday but would return if there were new developments in the case. The disappearance of Muthuraja has been linked to suspects in the murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others in Banting, Selangor. ******* Wives continue to trade barbs
KLANG: The two wives of missing Indian millionaire A. Muthuraja are not letting up in spewing anger at each other. While the first wife and Muthuraja’s family members painted S. Usharani as a gold-digger, the latter turned the guns on them by claiming her husband’s family wanted his property. “I’ll be going back to Chennai and will complain to the Inland Revenue Board to audit their assets,” said Usharani, 24, adding she would also file a defamation suit against Muthuraja’s family. She said they were denouncing her because they feared Muthuraja’s first wife, S. Ramalakshmi, would file a complaint against them over Muthuraja’s polygamous marriage to her. In Thirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, Ramalakshmi said Usharani was talking nonsense. “All I want is for my husband to be happy wherever he is. “I won’t trash my in-laws when they are grieving over my husband’s disappearance.” She rubbished claims that Muthuraja’s family was after his assets. ***** Sosilawati murder: Four suspects taken to farm again over missing contractor By A. RUBAN
KUALA LANGAT: Four suspects in the murder of cosmetics millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others were again taken to the farm where the murder allegedly took place. It is believed that the suspects, clad in orange prison attire, were taken to the farm in Ladang Gadong to assist police investigations into the disappearance of contractor Mohd Shafiq Abdullah. On Sunday, police found important leads believed to be related to the missing contractor, after a bulldozer was used to excavate two "burial spots" identified by the suspects. Police are investigating if the disappearance of the 37-year-old contractor from Sungai Petani is related to the main suspect in the Sosilawati murders, after finding a watch belonging to the contractor on the farm. At 11am Monday, six vehicles from the police and forensics departments were seen entering the site with the four suspects. They left four hours later. However, the main suspect was not present during the operation at the farm. ****
