Cops probe missing jewellery claim at Seremban hospital

SEREMBAN: The police are investigating a claim by a 31-year-old man that jewellery worn by his mother when she was admitted to the Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital to be treated for Covid-19 has gone missing.

Seremban police chief ACP Mohd Said Ibrahim confirmed that a report has been lodged over the missing jewellery.

"We have received a report and are investigating," he said when contacted.

In his report, T Narenthiran claimed that his mother was taken to the hospital around 3pm on Sunday after developing fever and breathing difficulties but died a few hours later.

Narenthiran, who works as a technician in Port Dickson, claimed he was accompanied by his sister Sharmely.

In his report, he claimed that his mother was wearing a gold chain or thali weighing around 30g and worth around RM7,500, earrings worth RM1,750, three bracelets and a ring.

However, when he went to the hospital to claim his mother's remains, he was only given a gold ring.

Narenthiran said in his report that he suspects that his mother's jewellery was stolen by hospital staff.

He also claimed that he was initially given the remains of an unidentified man who had also died due to Covid-19 instead of his mother's.

Narenthiran claimed his mother's remains were in another hearse and had been handed over to another family.

He also urged the police to probe the hospital staff for being negligent.
