Police seeking the Malaysia Medical Council’s (MMC) views with regard to two experts’ contradicting testimonies on Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim’s post-mortem report.
Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department chief Huzir Mohamed said cops will also call up several other individuals to record their statements as part of the probe into the fireman’s death last year.
“We have sought MMC for its views on the post-mortem reports. We are still waiting for its response, if it has any comments on that.
“We want to seek its views, whether there are contradictions or not. Because there are two differing views.
“The police do not have the expertise. (So) we ask the experts,” he told a press conference at the Selangor police headquarters yesterday.
He added that the police’s Forensic Department crime scene investigators would conduct a re-enactment of the scene through the 3D scanning method.
The coroners’ court, at the end of an inquest in September, ruled that Adib’s death was due to a criminal act by two or more unknown individuals.
Following the ruling, police continued their investigation into the case, which has been classified as murder.
During the inquest, forensic pathologists Professor Dr Shahrom Abd Wahid and Dr Ahmad Hafizam Hasmi disagreed on the cause of Adib’s injuries.
One view is that the fireman fell out of the emergency medical rescue services vehicle he was in, and the other is that he was pulled out by rioters and beaten.
Huzir said more witnesses will be called up to aid the investigation, including experts who had testified in Adib’s inquest.
Nine other people believed to be bystanders during the incident last year were also urged to come forward to facilitate investigation after their mugshots were distributed by police.
