Call for independent inquiry on Actress Sujatha’s Death

Wednesday, August 01, 2007

Manikavasam of Justice party (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) has called Malaysian Inspector of General of Police to setup an independent inquiry commission on the strange death of actress Sujatha, according to Makkal Osai daily, today.

Meanwhile, Malaysiakini reported that a senior minister’s son was questioned over her death for two hours without directly referring to Vellpaari, Work’s minister’s son, who had extramarital affair with Sujatha. Sources say that she has consumed paraquat, a weed killer pesticide used in plantations. What pushed her to take her life is unknown and many wonders if there is a cover-up.

Malaysiakini today learnt that a son of a cabinet minister was called in for questioning in relation to the mysterious death of actress K Sujatha.

However Sentul district police chief ACP K Kumaran refused to confirm if such a questioning took place when he was contacted late this evening.

Sources told malaysiakini the questioning took place for two hours yesterday evening and for about three hours this morning.

Sujatha’s death has been shrouded in mystery following allegations of foul play and that a post-mortem was not conducted.

Earlier today, Kumaran confirmed to malaysiakini that a post-mortem was performed on Sujatha.

He also said that a prominent person would be called in for questioning.

Kumaran said a post-mortem was conducted at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah hospital in Klang following the actress’ death on June 25.

He added that the police would also record a statement from hospital authorities soon for further information.

“The hospital furnished us a post-mortem report as her residence in Jalan Ipoh was within our jurisdiction,” said Kumaran when contacted.

Last Friday, the police chief told malaysiakini that investigations are underway into Sujatha’s death and that the police were also looking into the possibility of foul play.

Memo to IGP

PKR supreme council member S Manikavasagam, in a memorandum to the Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan yesterday, had alleged that a post-mortem was not conducted.

Hospital authorities are bound by law to immediately report “suspicious deaths” to the police.

Other than hospital authorities, Sentul police would also be calling in relatives and friends, including the son of a cabinet minister for whom Sujatha had worked as a private secretary, for questioning.

However, Kumaran declined to reveal any further details over fears of jeapordising investigations but promised that a fair and thorough investigation would be conducted.

The case has received prominent coverage in the Tamil dailies. It was also reported that Sujatha was ‘mysteriously transferred’ from a private hospital in Kuala Lumpur to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang where she died.

There are also speculations that Sujatha died from self-poisoning.

According to Manikavasagam’s memorandum, he urged Musa to form an independent team to investigate the matter in view of allegations in a poison-pen letter alleging that Kumaran was trying to cover up the matter. The Sentul police chief had denied the allegation.

The letter, mailed via courier to Manikavasagam, also implicated the son of the cabinet minister in Sujatha’s death.

Legal advisor to Police Watch and Human Rights Committee N Surendran who is monitoring the case, claimed that the police were slow in investigating the matter as it had almost been a month since Sujatha’s death.

“We are asking why did the police sit on this particular case,” said Surendran, who accompanied Manikavasagam to the Bukit Aman federal police headquarters yesterday.

“We are disappointed with the attitude of the police. They can call in a blogger within days of receiving a police report on sedition, but where in the case with the possibility of murder, they were sitting on it for more than a month,” he said.
