KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 — A witness told the High Court here today that two pairs of gloves with Datuk Anthony Kevin Morais’ bloodstains were found hidden in a four-wheel-drive vehicle used to ram into the car driven by the murdered deputy public prosecutor.
Sergeant Azmi Shaari from the Kedah police headquarters said the two black rubber gloves were found under the driver’s seat of the Mitsubishi Triton 4WD.
“The gloves were placed under the driver’s cushion and were not visible from the front, but the plastic bag (containing the gloves) could be seen from behind,” he said when questioned by deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin during the examination-in-chief in the murder trial of Kevin Morais which entered its 33rd day today.
At previous proceedings, Malaysian Chemistry Department DNA Forensics analyst Nor Aidora Saedon, 43, had confirmed that the bloodstains matched with DNA samples obtained from Kevin Morais.
Azmi, 55, is the 48th prosecution witness who was called to continue with his testimony today.
The witness said he was directed by Bukit Aman Special Task Force on Organised Crime (Stafoc) intelligence officer ACP Shazeli Kahar to find exhibits related to the case in the Mitsubishi Triton vehicle located at No 13, Lorong Cendawan 6/4, Taman Bayan, Lunas, Kulim, Kedah.
Six men — G.Gunasekaran, 48, R.Dinishwaran, 24, A.K. Thinesh Kumar, 23, M.Vishwanath, 26, S.Nimalan, 23 and S.Ravi Chandaran, 45, pleaded not guilty to murdering Kevin Morais between 7am and 8pm on Sept 4, 2015, between Jalan Dutamas Raya Sentul and No 1 Jalan USJ1/6D, Subang Jaya.
