KUALA LUMPUR: Analyses of blood and urine samples taken from murdered Chinese teenager Xu Jian Huang found no traces of drugs and alcohol, the High Court here heard.
Chemist Ramlee Ibrahim, 38, said he received the samples from investigating officer Asst Supt Nor Omar Sapi on Oct 4 and prepared a report on his findings on Oct 18.
Cross-examined by defence counsel Gobind Singh Deo, Ramlee said he was told by the police to test both samples for drug and alcohol content.
He admitted that he would not know if Jian Huang had been taking drugs or alcohol.
Another witness Sjn Hussin Mat testified that he was ordered by his superior to go to the Gleneagles Medical Centre to check on Jian Huang's body.
I found his left leg bound with a rope and also saw marks on his right leg and hands and bruises on his calves, he said.
Sjn Hussin said he spoke to Dr B. Rajasingam on the cause of Jian Huang's death but the doctor was unsure.
He said he was instructed to send the body to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in Cheras for a post-mortem.
The hearing continues on Tuesday.
