Cops: Dead girl found in apartment unit not raped

PETALING JAYA - A teenager, whose body was found clad in a bra and panties at an apartment unit in Damansara Damai last week, was not raped.

Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abd Rahim Jaafar said a post-mortem on victim K. Shanmugavalli, 18, showed no signs of rape.

"We are still investigating the motive behind the murders of the girl and her Indian national boyfriend," he said when contacted yesterday.

The victims had reportedly died about six days before a debt collector discovered their bodies at the apartment unit on Dec 18.

The man, identified as Mohinder Pal, 24, had seven stab wounds and was found in the living room, while the girl was found on a bed in the master bedroom with five stab wounds in the abdomen.

DCP Abdul Rahim said the cause of their deaths were severe stab wounds that led to severe loss of blood.

"We are not ruling out any possibility on what may have transpired that led to the murders.

"There was no sign of a break-in besides the lock broken by the debt collector. None of the victims' possessions were missing," he said.

It is learnt that the girl had been missing from home since Dec 13. Her family had lodged a report at the Puchong police station.

In a separate case, DCP Abdul Rahim said police have detained two remaining members of Gang Sasi, who had been involved in house-break-ins and theft of luxury cars in Selangor, Negri Sembilan and Johor.

They were arrested in Kajang a day after the alleged leader K. Sasitaran, 29, was shot dead.

An Ops Cantas Khas team from Serdang had tracked down Sasitaran and an accomplice, who were in a white Honda Odyssey at about 5.15pm on Dec 18 along Jalan Reko, Kajang.

"We believe their reign of terror has ended," said DCP Abdul Rahman.
