MIC Member Detained For Attacking Man Suspended From Party

KUALA LUMPUR – A MIC member who was detained for allegedly assaulting and injuring another man has been suspended by the party.

The suspect stabbed a man who lodged a MACC report against him causing the victim to suffer a 3-cm deep wound on his left hand. According to thevibes.com, MIC secretary-general, Rajasekaran R.Thiyagarajan had announced the party president’s decision as the action was contrary to the vision and mission of the party.

“MIC categorically states that it does not support any kind of violence in any form and manner whatsoever,” he said in a statement.

However, he stressed that the suspension does not mean the person is guilty.

“But MIC had to act now, considering that the video of the incident in question had gone viral on social media and MIC is concerned that if no decisive action is taken, this will set a bad example for all concerned,” he said.

“Any further action by MIC following this matter will be predicated on the investigation and subsequent action by police.”

MIC Youth Distanced Itself

He added that the party’s principle is to not support any anti-social activities, especially violent criminal activities.

MIC has carried out many anti-gangsterism programmes throughout the country and Rajasekaran called on members to uphold the country’s constitution and laws.

“Acts of violence are not the solution to any provocation by anyone,” he said.

NMH had reported the arrest of the suspect as announced by Sentul OCPD Beh Eng Lai.

Beh said the suspect has three past criminal records and will be remanded for investigations under Section 324 of the Penal Code, and if convicted, the offender could face up to 10 years imprisonment, a fine, or both.

Earlier, MIC Youth had distanced itself from the party member, saying his actions do not reflect the wing’s stance. Its chief Raven Kumar Krishnasamy said the wing’s leaders had taken note of the media reports and video recording that has gone viral.
