KUALA LUMPUR – The father of 15-year-old S. Sathiswaran who was killed by an office chair reportedly hurled from an upper floor of a multi-storey flat at the Seri Pantai People’s Housing Project in Pantai Dalam here last night, wants justice for his son.
Security guard K. Sathiasilan, 45, urged the police to arrest the culprit and bring the individual to justice.
“This was the first time that such an incident had occurred at the 21-storey flat,” he told Bernama here today.
The deceased’s mother, M. S. Kasthuribai, 45, said having witnessed the incident right before her eyes was something that was too much to bear.
“I am still traumatised after having seen my son lying in blood following the incident,” said the cook.
Kasthuribai said the incident occurred when she and Sathiswaran were returning home after visiting her disabled brother nearby.
“At that time, I told my son to buy a RM10 prepaid card at a sundry shop on the ground floor. Not too long after that, my son emerged from the shop and told me the prepaid card was sold out.
“At that juncture, a falling office chair struck my son’s head,” she said.
She asked passers-by for help and called her husband before taking Sathiswaran to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre where he was pronounced dead.
Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur CID chief, SAC Rusdi Mohd Isa said the police were in the midst of identifying the individual who hurled the chair from an upper floor of the multi-storey flat. – BERNAMA
