Police have no objection to second autopsy on security guard
By AUSTIN CAMOENS
PETALING JAYA: The police will not object to a second post-mortem to be carried out on security guard C Sugumaran as requested by the family who should bear the cost.
Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Tun Hisan Tun Hamzah said it was up to the family to organise the autopsy.
"We have no problem with having a second opinion, but the cost would have to be borne by them," he told reporters on Thursday.
It was reported that the Cabinet had requested for the forensic report on Sugumaran's death after MIC president Datuk Seri G Palanivel raised the issue in Cabinet.
Sugumaran died after allegedly being beaten by police and the public after he ran amok in Taman Sri Nanding, Hulu Langat last Wednesday.
The post-mortem showed he had died of a heart attack.
