Wife of ISA detainee lodges report, alleges torture

KUALA LUMPUR: The wife of an Internal Security Act detainee lodged a police report yesterday against the Home Ministry, police and the Kamunting detention centre in Perak, claiming her husband had been tortured.
Sharmila Uthiakumar claimed her husband Sanjeev Kumar Krishnan, 25, is now wheelchair-bound because of the torture.

In her report at the Dang Wangi police headquarters, she claimed her husband’s legs and his left hand were paralysed.

This was the second report to be lodged. The first was lodged by Sanjeev on April 25, at the Taiping police headquarters.

Sharmila said before her husband’s two-year ISA detention, he was remanded for 60 days until Sept 22 last year.
“I was only informed about my husband’s condition in April this year, after he was brought by the camp authorities to the Taiping Hospital for treatment.”
