Kugan Ananthan, another victim of our police brutalism..

Kugan Ananthan was held under a two-week remand to facilitate police investigations linking him to several car theft cases. The job of the police is clearly to find enough evidence to charge him in court. It was not to beat him to death. .
His family accused the police of killing Kugan while in custody and lodged a report at the Subang Jaya district police headquarters in Seri Kembangan.
The youth was detained by the police on Jan 15 in Kajang for questioning regarding several car theft incidences in the Subang Jaya district.
Kugan was subsequently held at the Puchong police station under a two-week remand to facilitate investigations.
Selangor police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar was reported as saying yesterday that Kugan had died of breathing difficulties.
Photographs and video footages of Kugan taken at the mortuary however revealed severe marks on his body. There were also deep cuts in his wrists and blood was oozing from his nose and mouth.
