A-G Chambers okays inquest into security guard's death
KUALA LUMPUR: The Attorney-General's Chambers has given the green light for the police to hold an inquest into the death of a security guard in Kajang last week.
Bukit Aman said in a statement that the Sudden Death Report on C Sugumar's case had been forwarded to the public prosecutor who on Tuesday gave the go-ahead to hold the inquest.
Police will obtain the date of the inquest from the magistrate.
A post-mortem done on Sugumar's body showed that he died of a heart attack.
It was reported that Sugumar died after he allegedly went amok with a metal rod near Taman Perkasa cemetery in Hulu Langat.
It is learnt that he acted wildly while waving a metal rod at bystanders at about 6.30pm last Wednesday.
Several police personnel rushed to the scene, tackled Sugumar and proceeded to handcuff him with the help of members of the public.
Sugumar died when he was about to be transported to a patrol car.
