Kugan Anandan was laid to rest today at about 5.30 PM after a long procession of about 20 kilometres. May his soul rest in peace. There were 5 arrests, 3 for wearing Hindraf T-shirts and the other 2 for trying to enter the hospital mortuary. There were all in about 500 people following the funeral procession.
The results of the second post-mortem report is not out yet, and it is hoped the Police will take action for the immediate release of the second and well as to take action if it is called for. This will be the best reciprocal action they could do in the remembrance of Kugan, as the Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail has himself asked the police to classify the death of A. Kugan as murder for investigation purposes.
If the Police are going to drag their feet, in concluding and taking positive action, and I daresay this will happen, it is up to us to write continually to keep the the issue relevant without being forgotten as another case of death under Police custody.
Kugan has become an unfortunate victim manhandled by the Police; the visuals were very clear, and let us hope this 22 year old’s case becomes instrumental in stopping Police brutality.
