Blood Stains Found In Farm Where Sosilawati And Three Others Were Believed Kille

SHAH ALAM, July 26 (Bernama) -- The High Court here was told Tuesday that the police inspection on a farm in Banting in September last year, which was alleged to be the location where cosmetic millionairess Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three other individuals were killed, found several items, including nine blood stains.

Chief Inspector N.Govindan, 45, who is an investigating officer at the Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department, said the items were found based on the direction indicated by third accused, R.Matan, and the fourth accused, R.Kathavarayan, after he questioned them on Sept 12, 2010.


Among the items found there were shovels, bone fragments, nine blood stains, six finger prints, seven pieces of cut wire, two cigarette butts, a cricket bat, earth sample which smelled of petrol, a container filled with explosive liquid and a blood-stained cushion cover, he said during examination-in-chief by deputy public prosecutor Saiful Edris Zainuddin.

Govindan, who is the 32nd prosecution witness, is testifying on the 11th day trial of a former lawyer N. Pathmanabhan and three farm workers, T. Thilaiyalagan, Matan and Khatavarayan, who are charged with murdering Sosilawati, 47, bank officer Noorhisham Mohamad, 38, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and Sosilawati's driver, Kamaruddin Shamsuddin, 44, at Lot 2001, Jalan Tanjong Layang, Tanjung Sepat, Banting, between 8.30pm and 9.45pm on Aug 30, 2010.

Pathmanabhan, 42, Thilaiyagan, 20, Matan, 21, and Khatavarayan, 31, were charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code which was read together with Section 34 of the same act which provided the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

Govindan said that about 7.30pm on Sept 13, 2010, based on a direction given by second accused, Thilaiyalagan, the police also found 14 pieces of charred wood at a garbage dumping ground in Sungai Arak, Banting.

During the proceeding, the defence raised several objections on the evidence by the witness pertaining to his questioning of the accused which led to the discovery of the exhibits.

Lawyer Ravi Nekoo, who represented Khatavarayan, said his client did not give such a statement to the police, while lawyer Manjeet Singh Dillon, who represented Pathmanaban, raised objections on the use of the Malay language by Govindan.

Manjeet Singh said that Gonvindan had questioned the accused in Tamil and the accused also responded in Tamil, but when testifying in court, Govindan spoke in Malay.

Lawyer Gurbachan Singh, who Thilaiyalagan, requested for a trial-within-trial to determine whether there was element of force or pressure used on the accused during the questioning.

Following the objections raised by the defence, judge Datuk Akhtar Tahir decided to hold a trial-within a trial after the witness had testified.

When hearing continued in the afternoon, Govindan who had earlier testified in Malay, used Tamil when referring to the statement given by the accused.

The hearing in the afternoon also turned tense when deputy public prosecutor Ishak Mohd Yusoff scolded court interpreter, K.Vijayan, over some misunderstanding on his translation.

Vijayan then apologised to Akhtar and said he could not continue with his task and left the court room.

Akhtar, who wanted to calm down the situation, told Vijayan to cool himself down outside the court room.

Ishak also apologised to Akhtar, but Manjeet Singh said he should apologise to Vijayan.

The hearing continues Wednesday.
