M Sooriakandhi, 51, made the plea at the Parliament lobby today, accompanied by Subang MP R Sivasara and activist S Jayathas.
However, Abu Seman was only able to promise that he would get details from the prison department. Met later, Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told reporters the same.
The deceased is R Kumarajah, age 27. He was convicted of motorcycle theft in 2011 and was incarcerated at the Kajang prison. He was scheduled for release in February 2013.
He was pronounced dead on Monday. There are several accounts on the circumstances of his death and the exact location where he died is unsure.
According to Sooriakandhi's police report, she had expressed dissatisfaction with the magistrate's declaration that her son had died of AIDS.
“The magistrate pronounced my son died on AIDS in 15 minute. (A hospital official) said there is no need to have post-mortem examination (and) we could take back the body,” wrote Sooriakandhi.
She added that Kumarajah was healthy when she visited him last Tuesday.
Contacted yesterday, Kajang OCPD Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab confirmed that Kumarajah died of AIDS but declined further comment.
