IPOH: It could take a month to get the final post-mortem report to determine the cause of death of fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, says Dr Lee Boon Chye.

The Deputy Health Minister said normally the pathologist report would list the cause of death, but further investigations needed to be carried out.

"Usually there is a need to do a blood test, and the test could take about a month to get the information on the type of injury.

"The pathologists will usually know the internal injury, and it depends if further blood test is necessary or otherwise to collaborate on the injury.

"If the pathologists feels it is sufficient to determine the cause of death, then they may not have to wait for other blood test results," he added.

Muhammad Adib, 24, passed away on Dec 17, after nearly a month fighting for his life after he was attacked during a riot at the Seafield Sri Mariamman Temple.

On Dec 21, Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said police would release the full forensic investigation report into his death in a few days.

He said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun had briefed him on the progress of the report.
