THIEVES broke into the house of road accident victim S. Baskaran while arrangements were being made to bring home his remains and those of his relatives, Tamil Nesan reported yesterday. 

The daily reported that the thieves gained entry into the house by prising open the planks of the wooden house in Hutan Melintang, Perak. 

The thieves carted away cash, jewellery, a television set, a radio, a VCD player and other electrical appliances. 

Quoting one of Baskaran's relatives, S. Nadesan, the daily reported that the burglars entered the house when they knew that the relatives had gone to Sitiawan in Perak to claim the remains of Baskaran, 37, his wife, P. Shanti, 30, their 18-month-old son and Baskaran’s sister S. Navamani. 

They were killed when the car they were travelling in collided with a lorry near Sitiawan on Wednesday afternoon.  

The daily also reported that 286 families in Kinta district received land titles on Wednesday. 

Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali’s representative, Datuk Ramli Shariff, handed over the titles to the recipients at the land office in Ipoh.  

The daily also reported that workers in Ladang Bukit Rajah in Klang had asked the estate management to reconsider the decision to build flats for them. 

The daily quoted the workers’ representative, I. Mohan, as saying that the matter had been referred to Selangor exco member Datuk K. Sivalingam for further action.
