Fugitive police inspector Hari Krishnan Subramaniam (pic) surrendered to police this morning. He was wanted in connection with the murder of detainee N Dhamendran.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the Inspector from the Kuala Lumpur police's serious crimes division turned up with his lawyer at 10am.
He is expected to be charged tomorrow with the murder of Dhamendran.
Hari Krishnan had been listed as "wanted" after he failed to return from his leave while under investigations into Dhamendran's murder.
It was reported earlier that Hari Krishnan had lodged a report earlier this month claiming he was dragged into the case to “protect certain parties".
The report was lodged nine days after Dhamendran’s death on May 21.
Dhamendran, 31, was found dead in the lock-up 10 days after he was arrested over an alleged offence involving the use firearms.
Police initially claimed that the victim died of breathing difficulties but a post-mortem revealed he suffered 52 injuries.
Three policemen – Sergeant Jaffri Jaafar, 44, Corporal Mohd Nahar Abd Rahman, 45, and Corporal Mohd Haswadi Zamri Shaari, 32, – were charged with the murder of Dhamendran on June 5.
However, police claimed that they could not charge Hari Krishnan as he went missing from duty on June 15. They released a photofit of him recently. - July 29, 2013.
