JOHOR BARU: Retired assistant commissioner S. Kulasingam, who was known for his bravery in fighting crime, passed away peacefully with family members and friends by his side.
The 77-year-old veteran cop, who was wounded several times in the line of duty, passed away at 3.06am at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital here Thursday.
With him were his younger sister S. Arthi, elder brother Dr S. Ratna, family members and close friends.
Kulasingam had been hospitalised since Sept 29 after he slipped and fell in the bathroom of his apartment at Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad.
According to a close friend J. Joyce, one of his nephews who was there during the fall, helped him.
"He was later hospitalised after fracturing his bone during the fall.
"He was able to walk again soon after undergoing an operation to replace a broken hip bone," she said, adding that she had known Kulasingam for the past 20 years.
The former Kuala Lumpur deputy CID chief was involved in police operations involving notorious criminals such as Botak Chin and Kepong Chai, a notorious criminal who used to rape women and then scar their face with a blade.
