A Kuppusamy, the uncle of police brutality victim C Sugumar, decried the apparent deception by Najib and the way which he believes the family has been taken for a ride.

"We thought the government will treat us fairly, but they deceive us. As if they have something to hide.

"You cannot give us back a life, but we want justice," concluded Kuppusamy.

He lamented that funeral rites for Sugumar have yet to be held despite his death over 21 days ago, pending the second autopsy.

According to the Hindu practice, a deceased body must be given the religious rites 16 days after his or her death, and the final rites after 30 days.

Sugumar was found dead last month after he was apprehended by police and locals after allegedly going on a rampage in Klang.

Police claimed that he died of a heart attack, though witnesses and family members blame the beating he allegedly took at the hands of police and others who participated in his arrest.
