Teenager found hanged after he was issued traffic summonses

MALACCA: A 15-year-old boy, who returned home after being issued traffic summonses while running an errand for his mother, was found hanged in his room at their home in Jasin, near here.

The police have ruled it as “sudden death” but the family of teenager M. Rajathurai wants the case to be probed further as they feel that there is something amiss about the events that led to his death.

His mother S. Chinammah, 49, said she had asked the boy, a Third Former at SM Sri Bemban, to go to the grocery store to buy some household items at about 1.35pm on Saturday.

She thought he would walk to the shop. Instead, Rajathurai went to borrow a friend’s motorbike to get to the store.

“Several policemen spotted him on his way back and detained him,” she said in between tears at their home in Taman Bemban Utama, Jasin, yesterday.

Chinammah said Rajathurai, the youngest of four siblings, returned home with the policemen accompanying him.

“He asked for his Mykad and then was taken by the policemen to the Bemban police station,” she said, adding that the boy was issued summonses for riding the bike without a licence and for not wearing a safety helmet.

“My son came back with the summonses and I scolded him for his action,” she sobbed, adding that Raja-thurai then went straight to his room. At about 5pm, she found his lifeless body hanged from a beam in the room.

Malacca police chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Chuah Ghee Lye said the police would investigate the boy’s death fairly.

Conveying his condolence to Rajathurai’s family, he added: “It’s an unfortunate incident but there could be two sides to the coin.

“Let us probe to determine whether my officers employed strong-arm tactics that caused tremendous pressure on the boy,” he told The Star yesterday.

SAC Chuah said the police were working hard to minimise traffic violations in the state and, in Rajathurai’s case, the officers had acted according to normal procedures to issue the summonses.
