‘Dinesh was shot like in the Wild West’

 | August 26, 2012

PKR duo maintains that businessman Dinesh's death was a cold blooded murder.

PETALING JAYA: Kapar MP S Manikavasagam today described the ruthless police killing of businessman, D Dinesh, as akin to the shooting in the Wild West.

“Dinesh was shot ruthlessly by the police near Ampang Point traffic light,” he said after attending the 26-year-old’s funeral in Prima Damansara, Selangor.

Dinesh, who was the youngest child in his family, was shot on Aug 21 while travelling with six of his friends and two relatives.

According to Manikavasagam, the police shot Dinesh, engaged to be married next month, at a close range.

“The post mortem report shows one shot went through his skull and another went through his shoulder.

“The police are claiming gang clash but we have eyewitnesses to prove otherwise,” said Manikavasagam.

Dinesh was sent to Ampang Hospital and then to Kuala Lumpur Hospital for post-mortem.

The funeral held today attracted a large crowd.

Dinesh’s body was taken from his home in Prima Damansara to his car-wash outlets in Damansara Damai and Sungai Buloh before the burial ceremony was held in Jalan Loke Yew.

PKR vice president N Surendran, who also attended the funeral, meanwhile described Dinesh’s death as a “cold blooded murder”.

“We want an explanation from the police on this cold blooded murder and we urge them not to cover up the case.

“We will also prove that this is a cold blooded murder since we have eye witnesses,” said Surendran.

A press conference would be called tomorrow in PKR headquarters where eye-witnesses are expected to debunk police allegations of a gang clash.
