PETALING JAYA: A 36-year-old detainee has died in police custody at the South Klang police headquarters.

The detainee, Umar Faruq Abdullah was detained on Wednesday (June 2) in connection with investigations into a theft case and he was subsequently remanded.

Lawyer M. Manoharan said that Umar Faruq's wife Humairah Abdullah had gone to the police headquarters to bring him food on Thursday morning.

"She waited and waited but didn't get to see him at the police headquarters but was later told by a policeman that her husband had passed away at 3.30pm on Thursday. Humairah was informed that her husband fell to his death," he said in a Facebook post.

Manoharan added that he was planning to take legal action against the police and the government over the matter.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed is expected to have a press conference later on Friday (June 4) on the matter.
