KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 – Police have urged the public not to speculate on the death yesterday of Teoh Beng Hock, police secretary to a Selangor Exco member.
Deputy Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said all quarters should wait for the investigation report and not jump to conclusion.
“We will do the autopsy this morning. Please wait until the autopsy is completed,” he told a press conference after closing a seminar for chemical diversion investigators here today.
Ismail hopes that the autopsy report would provide clues on Teoh’s death and that the investigation was done according to legal procedures.
The motive for the incident will only be known when investigation is completed.
Asked why four pathologists were involved in the investigation, Ismail said the police were using all resources at their disposal.
“It is normal for us to seek assistance from others. I have yet to receive any report on the incident from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC),” he said.
Teoh, 30, was found dead in the corridor of level five at Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam which houses the Selangor MACC office, eight hours after giving statements on alleged abuse of government allocation. – Bernama
