A factory worker and a security guard charged with disposing evidence in the murder of teenager.

Factory worker D Khishendra, 24, and his friend K Mathan Raj, 31, were charged at the Johor Bahru Sessions Court today with disposing evidence in the murder of 19-year-old S Navina, whose body was found at a bus stop last month.

The charge stated they committed the act at a bus stop in Jalan Persiaran Sungai Danga in Perling, Johor, at 7.50am on Sep 21.

The offence falls under Section 201 of the Penal Code for causing disappearance of evidence of an offence committed to screen the offender, which is read together with Section 34 of the Penal Code.

Both men pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Public Prosecutor Suhaila Shafiuddin asked Sessions Court Judge Kamarudin Kamsun for bail to be set at RM30,000 each.

Khishendra’s lawyer R Subash asked for a lower bail, saying that the accused is the sole breadwinner for his family and is caring for his parents.

Mathan Raj’s counsels, Mohammad Ashraff Mohd Diah and Ahmad Yusri Ahmad Fuad, also asked for a lower bail. They told the court that their client earns a low salary and is getting married in December.

The judge set bail at RM12,000 for Khishendra and RM10,000 for Mathan Raj. He set Nov 9 for re-mention of the case.

The body of unemployed S Navina, with injuries to the head, was found by a passer-by at a bus stop.

Police believed that the victim was attacked and killed at another location before being dumped at the bus stop.

Eight days after Navina’s body was found, police arrested four men, aged 22 to 41.
