PETALING JAYA, Oct 2 –The High Court here today ordered police to produce toxicology samples of A. Kugan, who died in police custody, before the magistrate's court next Friday.
The samples were seized by police from the University Malaya Medical Centre on April 6 when they raided the office of the pathologist who had conducted the second post-mortem on the 22-year-old who died on Jan 20.
High Court Judge Datin Yeoh Wee Siam ruled that the search was legal but the police should have produced the samples before a magistrate.
Yeoh said the magistrate on Friday will decide what should be done with the samples and if Kugan's family should keep them.
A policeman was charged yesterday on two counts of causing grievous hurt on Kugan on Jan 16, four days before he died.
Eleven policemen were suspended from duties for their involvement in his interrogation linked to a suspected car theft syndicate.
