No charges against Tapah murders duo due to lack of DNA evidence


TAPAH --- The Attorney-General's Chambers has decided not to prosecute the two main suspects in the murder of four people in Tapah last year.

Perak CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Goh Kok Liang confirmed that the AGC came to the decision due to lack of evidence.

SAC Goh said on Thursday, the families of the victims were briefed by Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Amar Singh, who was then Federal CID deputy director, of the AGC's decision.

He said the families said they were disappointed with the decision.

"They are not happy but that is the fact. We could not charge them because the DNA did not match the victims.

"Police could not make a decision whether they were killed. We could not verify because the DNAs given by the families could not match," SAC Goh told reporters.

He said police had suggested to the AGC that an inquest be held to determine if the victims were indeed dead.

"Once the coroner comes to a decision, we can ask the National Registry Department (JPN) to issue death certificates," he said.

SAC Goh said police had done their best in the investigations.

"Our officers could not confirm the DNA and they visited the site twice.

"We need evidence that the victims are dead but there were no other evidence. The DNA we collected from the families did not match the bone shards exhibits.

"Until now, no charge can be raised against the suspects and it shows how important the DNA is to this case."

The main suspect, a 58-year-old mechanic, is now detained at the Simpang Renggam special rehabilitation centre while his 21-year-old son is held at the Kluang centre.

Both had been remanded by the police since October last year for investigations into the four murders that were believed to have taken place at the mechanic’s workshop.

They were detained to facilitate investigation into the deaths of land broker Jasbeer Singh, 46, spare-part dealer Ng Chor Kee, 54, bus conductor V. Gunawathy, 56, and bus conductor Ng Ah Leng, 36.

Jasbeer was reported missing in late Aug 2015. Gunawathy was reported missing in March 2014 while Chor Kee  who went missing three months later.

Ah Leng@Mohan, who worked at the workshop, was reported missing on Oct 30 2012.
