The Star

PETALING JAYA: A Sessions Court has fixed Dec 3 for its verdict in the case of A. Kugan, who died in police custody.

In the dock is Kons V. Navindran, who claimed trial to two charges of causing grievous hurt to 23-year-old Kugan.

The policeman is alleged to have committed the offences at the interrogation room of the serious crimes branch office at the Taipan police station in USJ, Subang Jaya, at 7am and 4pm on Jan 16 last year.

Kons Navindran, who is attached to the Subang Jaya district police station, is alleged to have caused grievous hurt to Kugan to extort a confession or information, which may lead to the detection of an offence or misconduct.

If found guilty, the father of two could be jailed up to 10 years and fined for each charge under Section 331 of the Penal Code.

Judge Aslam Zainuddin also fixed Nov 8 for the prosecution to add more arguments in their submission.

The defence is to reply to the prosecution’s submission by Nov 22.
