KUALA LUMPUR – An investigating officer today told the High Court here that the accident involving deputy public prosecutor Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais’ car and a Mitsubishi Triton was deliberate and not a normal accident.
Insp Ahmad Zikri Zalik, 30, who is based at Sentul district police headquarters said the CCTV showed Kevin Morais’ Proton Perdana being followed by a four-wheel-drive vehicle with four persons inside.
“In my opinion, the crash was not an accident because the victim’s vehicle was tailed and investigations found that the accused persons also had a plan to meet the victim,” he said, responding to deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin’s question.
Earlier under cross-examination by counsel V. Rajehgopal, Ahmad Zikri who is the prosecution’s 68th witness also disagreed that it was a normal accident between two vehicles.
Five men – R. Dinishwaran, 25; A.K. Thinesh Kumar, 24; M. Vishwanath, 27; S. Nimalan, 24; and S. Ravi Chandaran, 46, stand accused of murdering Kevin Morais along Jalan Dutamas Raya Sentul and No.1 Jalan USJ1/6D, Subang Jaya, between 7 am and 8 pm on Sept 4, 2015.
