KUALA LUMPUR: Badan bukan kerajaan SUARAM dalam satu kenyataan hari ini mengecam Ketua Balai Polis Daerah (OCPD) Dang Wangi Zainuddin Ahmad ekoran tiga kematian dalam tahanan daripada September hingga Disember tahun lepas.

Kematian terbaru K Nagarajan, 32 pada 21 Disember 2012 merupakan yang ketiga di balai tersebut, sebelum ini dua lagi mangsa Chandran Perumalu, 47 dan Wong Tip Ping, 51 turut mengalami nasib serupa di balai sama.

“Balai polis Dang Wangi belum pun kering lagi darah ditangan tetapi sudah menambah satu lagi kematian dalam rekod, Nagarajanadalah mangsa yang terkini,” kata jawatankuasa Suaram, R Thevarajan hari ini.

Menurut Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM), Nagarajan didakwa mati setelah terjatuh di dalam lokap ketika ditahan di balai polis Dang Wangi.

Kumpulan tersebut juga menggesa satu inkuiri bebas dijalankan bagi menyiasat kematian mangsa terbaru tersebut.

“SUARAM sangat marah dan terkilan dengan kematian dalam tahanan yang masih berterusan. Sebagai menuntut keadilan, kami menggesa satu inkuiri bebas diadakan untuk meniyiasat.

Disamping itu, SUARAM juga mengecam Zainuddin sebagai seorang OCPD yang tidak bertanggungjawab memandangkan kematian kali ini adalah yang ketiga sejak beliau menggantikan Mohamad Zulkarnain Abd Rahman pada Ogos tahun lepas.

“Bagaimana beliau boleh membenarkan satu lagi kematian suspek semasa di bawah pengawasannya,” soal Thevarajan kepada Zainuddin.

Menurut SUARAM, di bawah Undang-Undang Lokap 1958, seseorang pegawai polis yang bertugas perlu memastikan kesihatan tahanan dalam keadaan baik dan lokap yang didiaminya selesa, selain bertanggungjawab memastikan kesihatan tahanan dan lokap semasa waktu ditahan berada pada tahap baik.

Sekiranya Zainuddin gagal dan tidak mampu menjalankan tugas yang diamanahkan kepadanya serta mengurangkan kadar kematian dalam tahanan, SUARAM menggesa beliau untuk meletak jawatan.

Kumpulan tersebut juga menggesa penubuhan Suruhanjaya Bebas Aduan dan Salah Laku Polis (IPCMC) yang sudah lama mereka cadangkan kerana selagi inkuiri tersebut tidak diwajibkan, semua aduan daripada orang awam dan kumpulan bukan kerajaan tidak akan diendahkan.

Statistik PDRM menunjukkan daripada tahun 2000 hingga 2011, sebanak 147 orang telah mati di dalam tahanan.

Kematian dalam tahanan A Kugan di balai polis USJ pada 2009 dan Teoh Beng Hock semasa ditahan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) pada Julai 2009 antara kes mendapat perhatian utama rakyat Malaysia hingga kerajaan dikritik dengan hebat ekoran kematian tersebut.
