New twist in Sosilawati murder case

KLANG: The murder of cosmetics queen Datuk Sosilawati Lawiyah has taken another twist with drama unfolding in India.

Besides S. Usharani – the woman who spoke to the press appealing for information on her missing husband, businessman A. Muthu­raja – another woman in India has claimed to be the man’s lawfully-wedded wife.

S. Ramalakshmi, 36, said al­­though she was estranged from Muthuraja, they had planned to get back together.

She also claimed that Usharani, 24, was not legally married to Muthuraja.

Muthuraja disappeared after meeting the two lawyer brothers who are the main suspects in the murders of Sosilawati and three others.

In other developments:

>       Muthuraja’s father believes that his son is not dead but is only being held captive;

>       Two men, one picked up on Friday and the other yesterday, have been remanded for a week in connection with the disappearance of the Indian businessman; and

>       Three others, including the brothers, had their remand order extended for another week.
