Rintihan ibu mati dalam tahanan berterusan- Tamil Selvee
“It is with regret we recall the untimely demise of M Ulaganathan in 2003. An inquest was only held in 2007 after four years of endless letters to the government, memorandums and press conferences,” Suaram said.
Ulaganathan was 19 when he died while in police custody at the Kajang district police headquarters.
Three years later, his mother, Tamil Selvee, 56, sued the police force for negligence over his death.
She went on to win this suit in 2008, five years after his death.
“We urge the government and police to take responsibility for Isparan’s death and to take subsequent action against the officers in charge through an independent inquest,” said Suaram.
