KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 22, 2015:
Police have called up deputy MIC president Datuk Seri S K Devamany to identify two individuals who were allegedly involved in attacking him at the MIC headquarters last Thursday.
Dang Wangi CID chief Deputy Supt M Gunalan told The Rakyat Post that the two men surrendered themselves to the station a day after the incident.
“The application for remand was rejected so police called up Devamany to identify the suspects in a line-up.
“Both individuals claim to be involved, but investigations can’t continue as the remand was denied,” he said.
He added that Devamany would be needed at the station to identify if the two individuals were involved in the incident or not.
Meanwhile, commenting on what had happened, MIC Youth chief C. Sivarrajh said it was puzzling why police took so long to take further action on the culprits.
“On the day of the incident, there were heavy police presence in the vicinity.
“I thank the PDRM on behalf of MIC for their support, but we in MIC are expecting an expedited investigation into this matter.
“Any further delay in investigating this matter will only create doubt and dampen the confidence and trust we have in the police force,” the MIC Youth chief said in a statement yesterday.
In the incident, Devamany was allegedly punched when he was at the party headquarters where he had invited a group aligned to former MIC president Datuk Seri G. Palanivel.
It was said that the invitation was to work things out between the two factions in the party.The incident happened when he was leaving the building at about 5.15pm after completing negotiations between the feuding factions in the party.
