KUALA LUMPUR - The sister of the man who killed his wife and two pet dogs before committing suicide recalls how shocked she was to receive a chilling phone call from him before he died.

Mathimeechi said her brother, G. Rajamani, 33, had called her around 9pm Saturday to apologise for causing pain to both his and wife K. Anita's families.

"He then hung up. I tried calling him back for the next 12 minutes, but to no avail," said the grieving sister.

Rajamani had reportedly slit the throats of Anita and two pet dogs with a penknife before turning the knife on himself.

She said she arrived at his apartment an hour later and sought help from Rajamani's neighbour to open the door to the couple's flat unit.

They called the police after making the gruesome discovery.

Mathimeechi also denied saying that her brother, nicknamed Selvam, was furious that Anita was having an affair.

"I never said anything of the sort. If they were going through marital problems, we would be the first to know of it.

"Selvam and Anita had always been a loving couple ever since they got together in Form Three. They were high-school sweethearts," she said.

Meanwhile, Anita's 38-year-old brother, K. Karthigesan denied reports saying that his sister was unable to conceive children.

"She got pregnant once but had a miscarriage.

"What happened was completely unexpected and devastating. Only God knows what was going through Selvam's head at that point of time," he said.

The couple were cremated at the DBKL Cremation Centre at Jalan Kuari on Monday.
