SHAH ALAM: The parang, found in the car that teenager Aminulrasyid Amzah drove in April, was rusted and without bloodstains, a forensic chemist told the Sessions Court.

Dr Seah Lay Hong yesterday said the parang probably had not been used for some time,

“I took a swab of the hilt but there were no indications of DNA profile on it,” said the Malaysia Department of Chemistry chemist on the fifth day of the trial of policeman Kpl Jenain Subi.

She added that she did not run any fingerprint test on the parang.

Dr Seah also said a bloodstained red T-shirt and a blue and white floral-print shorts were submitted to her for DNA profiling but the results were inconclusive and very vague.

“It could be Aminulrasyid’s or somebody else’s blood,” she said.

Defence counsel Salim Bashir then pointed out to her that the T-shirt and shorts in Aminulrasyid’s post-mortem photos were different from the clothing items submitted to her, and Dr Seah agreed.

She added there were no slugs, sub-machine gun or vehicle sent to her for analysis.

Kpl Jenain is charged with causing the death of Aminulrasyid, 15, at Jalan Tarian 11/2 here in the early hours of April 26.

Shah Alam police headquarters armoury keeper L/Kp l Ismail Daud also testified, saying that 21 out of 100 bullets supplied to Kpl Jenain were missing after Aminulrasyid was killed in the early morning car chase.

He said Kpl Jenain had collected a MP5 sub-machine gun along with four magazines with 25 bullets in each, on April 25. After his patrol duty, Kpl Jenain returned the weapon with only 79 bullets left.

L/Kpl Ismail said he had asked Kpl Jenain why there were only four bullets left in one magazine, and Kpl Jenain answered that he had fired some shots but did not know how many.

Appearing for the prosecution were deputy public prosecutors Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar, Adilla Ahmad and Siti Rohaida Che Hamid while Kpl Jenain was represented by M.M. Athimulan, Salim, Halim Ashgar and K. Rajoo.
