KUALA LUMPUR, 29 Mei (Bernama) -- Mahkamah Tinggi di sini menetapkan 19 Jun

ini untuk keputusan kes saman kecuaian yang difailkan oleh ibu A.Kugan, suspek

yang meninggal dunia ketika dalam tahanan polis pada 2009.

Hakim Datuk V.T. Singham menetapkan tarikh berkenaan selepas mendengar

penghujahan daripada Peguam Kanan Persekutuan Azizan Md Arshad dan peguam

R.Sivarasa, yang mewakili ibu Kugan, N. Indra.

Pada 13 Jan tahun lepas, N. Indra memfailkan saman menuntut ganti rugi RM100

juta dengan menamakan Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, yang ketika

itu Ketua Polis Selangor sebagai defendan pertama.

Bekas anggota polis, V. Navindran (yang didapati bersalah mengakibatkan

kecederaan kepada Kugan) sebagai defendan kedua diikuti bekas Ketua Polis Daerah

Subang Jaya ACP Zainal Rashid Abu Bakar, Ketua Polis Negara dan kerajaan.

Azizan, yang mewakili pihak defendan, mengemukakan bahawa selepas

penyiasatan, terdapat hubungan antara Navindran dan punca kecederaan kepada si

mati.

MAHKAMAH-KUGAN 2 KUALA LUMPUR

"Dalam perbicaraan itu, ia menunjukkan Navindran datang ke balai polis di

mana si mati ditahan dan menyebabkan kecederaan. Dua anggota polis, Lans Koperal

Mohd Haizan Hamid dan Lans Koperal Junid Haron kemudian menghentikan Navindran

daripada terus memukul si mati.

"Navindran didakwa di mahkamah dan didapati bersalah berdasarkan keterangan

Mohd Haizan dan Junid. Oleh itu, kami mengemukakan bahawa keputusan untuk

mendakwa Navindran jelas menunjukkan dia tidak menjalankan tugas rasminya

sebagai pegawai polis tetapi bertindak secara bermain-main," katanya.

Beliau juga berkata Navindran telah hanya menafikan bahawa dia adalah orang

yang menyebabkan kecederaan tanpa apa-apa sokongan, menyalahkan orang lain

kerana memilih dia sebagai ''kambing hitam'' dan bukannya mencabar bukti yang

dikemukakan oleh orang lain.

Peguam Sivarasa berhujah bahawa Indra telah kehilangan sokongan dan

sumbangan kewangan bulanan selepas Kugan meninggal dunia.

Ketika ditahan, Kugan berusia 23 tahun dan adalah suspek kes curi kereta

mewah.

Dalam pernyataan tuntutannya, Indra mendakwa kesemua defendan gagal

memastikan keselamatan, kesihatan dan kebajikan anaknya semasa dia dalam tahanan

polis dari 14 hingga 20 Jan 2009.
