Post mortem: Kugan died from beating

KUALA LUMPUR (March 3, 2009) : A second post-mortem conducted on A. Kugan who died in police custody revealed 45 injury marks on his body believed to have been caused by beating repeatedly with a blunt object, according to the family lawyer N. Surendran.

Surendran said he received the results of the post-mortem, issued by the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), at 5pm yesterday. The post-mortem team was headed by Dr Prashant N. Samberkar.

"Extensive haemorrhaging was present within the fatty tissues and the muscles of the upper trunk, lower trunk, both upper limbs and both lower limbs. The findings are consistent with injuries on the external surface," Surendran told a news conference here today.

What's next PDRM? Already reeling from poor PR due to it's partisan behaviour in favor of the ruling government. I thought use of such deadly force

"Rhabdomyolysis is the rapid breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue due to muscle damage. The muscle damage may be caused by physical, e.g. crush injury, chemical or biological factors," he said.

The news conference was also attended by Kugan's family members.

Surendran said Kugan's death was the result of injuries to muscle tissues besides other injuries, including to the heart, kidneys, stomach, neck, backbone and legs.

The PDRM (police) faces increasing pressure as the tide of discontent is rising with every incompetent action. They are seen as totally partisan towards the government without any regard for the law they are supposedly upholding.

I thought such use of deadly force is only prevalent in Gaza where the Jews clobber defenseless Palestinians to death. The very same Palestinians who'd gladly wear an explosives vest and blow up as many Jewish man, woman or baby they can find.
