Visvanathan explains the coroner’s verdict to widow K Kalaivani
KUALA LUMPUR: A coroner’s court today ruled that a former lorry driver who was under police custody died due to police negligence or omission.
Coroner Mohd Zulbahrin Zainuddin said even though the death of R Thangaraja was related to coronary heart disease and diabetic complications, the deceased could have been saved if the police had given him timely medical assistance when in the lock-up.
“The failure to give him early medical aid is connected to the negligence of the lock-up management authorities,” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Temple priests ask IGP to act against intruding gangsters. A total of 48 reports have been lodged with the police by worshippers at two Hindu temples but no action has been taken so far.
Deaths in police custody have become far too common for Indian Malaysians. And the police neglect of reports by Indian citizens have been disgraceful.
I am sick of appealing to, admonishing and accusing the PDRM of discriminatory treatment of Indian Malaysians.
