KUALA LUMPUR, 19 March 2009: The investigation into the murder of Johor assemblyperson for Tenggaroh Datuk S Krishnasamy is continuing, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said today.
Thirteen men were held in stages to help in the investigation into the case but all the suspects were released as there was no strong evidence to link them to the crime, he said.
“However, the investigation into the case is continuing,” he said in a written reply to a question from Karpal Singh (DAP-Bukit Gelugor) who had wanted to know the latest on the probe.
Syed Hamid said a special investigation team had been set up to conduct the probe into Krishnasamy’s murder.
Krishnasamy, 61, who was also the Johor MIC deputy chairperson, was shot dead in a lift of the Johor MIC headquarters building in Johor Baru on 11 Jan as he was on his way to attend a meeting at the office.— Bernama
