The second post mortem on death in custody victim M Krishnan is confirmed for tomorrow, starting at 9am at the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).
One of the lawyers representing the family, N Surendran (right), said the family is expected to turn up at Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) in Cheras at 8am tomorrow to collect Krishnan's body before bringing it to UMMC for the post mortem.
"The family and their lawyers will be there. The post mortem will be done by Dr Prashant (N Samberkar)," Surendran said, referring to the doctor requested for by Krishnan's widow, P Revathi.
Yesterday, both the police and the attorney-general agreed to the family's request for a second post mortem to be carried out on Krishnan's body, in a settlement recorded before High Court judge Justice Mohd Zabidin Mohd Diah.
Krishnan's family had earlier filed an application seeking a court order to carry out a second post mortem on his body after police said they would only agree to it if there is a court order.
Krishnan was found dead while in detention at the Bukit Jalil police station on Jan 7, several days after he was detained with several others for alleged drug-related offences.
The first post mortem conducted at HUKM cited complications related to a stomach ulcer as Krishnan's cause of death, but his family claimed that the victim's body was covered with bruises, raising doubts over the post mortem results.
The victim's friend, A Sargunan, later came out to support the family's claim, saying that he had witnessed police officers assault Krishnan and that they had refused him medical attention despite repeated requests over the course of his detention.
