PETALING JAYA: The family of a Sri Lankan who was shot dead by police last Saturday has produced evidence to disprove the police version of events.

Yesterday, the family of Janarthanan Vijayaratnam showed theSun flight tickets for his departure from London’s Gatwick Airport on Aug 26 and arrival at KLIA the following day, as well as his return ticket to England on Sept 23.

They also provided copies of his income tax, council tax and other documents that indicated he was working and living in England.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin said on Wednesday that police were engaged in a shootout with three men following a 7km chase on Saturday night. All three, including Janarthanan, were killed.

Janarthanan’s sister in-law Vasanthi Govindasamy reiterated the family’s stand that the explanation provided by the police was inaccurate.

“We have proof that he was in England and only arrived in Malaysia on Aug 27. I have the supporting documents to prove that he was not in Malaysia as the police alleged,” she added.
