Cop describes crime scene


KUALA LUMPUR: Various sizes of bloodstained shoe prints were found in a treatment room of a clinic where an elderly doctor was murdered three years ago, a High Court heard. 

L/Kpl Sainan Wahab, 42, agreed that the prints, which were still wet, were from persons heading out of the room.  

He was testifying at the trial of college student Nor Adzlan Idris, unemployed Choy Chin Chuan, both 23, and jobless Lee Jun Ho, 25. 

Nor Adzlan is the son of former Deputy Federal Territory Minister Tan Sri Idris Abdul Rauf. 

They are alleged to have killed Dr T. Ariaratnam, 66, at Pusat Perubatan Arinaga in Lorong Maarof, Bangsar Park, between 3.30am and 4am on April 21, 2003. 

Asked if he could have stepped on the blood while he was doing his job, L/Kpl Sainan said he did not walk around. 

He said Insp Jinbai Bala, an officer in the forensics team, guided him while he took 23 photographs of the place, and he did no remove any objects.  

He said Insp Jinbai also told him to trace the fingerprints on the medicine boxes. 

Asked if he had tried to trace the fingerprints on the parang discovered in a car, he said, no. 

Cross-examined by lawyer Gooi Soon Seng, L/Kpl Sainan said, he did not inspect the inside of a Proton Wira car with registration number WJT 936. 

To a question by Naran Singh, he disagreed that several policemen and the forensic team had gone in and out of the treatment room when he was doing his work. 

Kpl Ruhizad Mahmod, 37, testified that he took 13 photographs of the place, and seven of the victim’s body at the hospital. 

Kpl Mohd Fauzi Hamat, 48, denied a suggestion by Naran Singh that he took photographs of the case 15 days after the incident. 

The hearing continues today.
