The magistrate’s court today set Jan 11 for mention in the case of four teenagers who have been charged with murdering bully victim T Nhaveen.
Magistrate Mohamad Amin Shahul Hamid set the date after deputy public prosecutor (DPP) Mohamad Syafiq Mohd Sazali told the court that the chemist department report has not been completed yet.
Besides Nhaveen’s mother D Shanti, only the accused’s parents were allowed to follow the proceedings while others were asked to leave the courtroom.
On Sept 28, the case was postponed to today as the post-mortem report was not ready.
Speaking on behalf of Nhaveen’s family, lawyer Datuk Baljit Singh expressed his disappointment that the chemist report was taking so long.
On June 19, four teenagers, aged 16 to 18, were charged with murdering Nhaveen, 18. The two 18-year-old accused were J Ragesuthan and S Gokulan, while the other two were a Form Four student and a Form Five student.
They claimed trial to the charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the mandatory death sentence on conviction.
