Indian lawyer missing in Malaysia since January

Klang (Malaysia), Sept.14 (ANI): An Indian lawyer, who visited his wife, has gone missing in Malaysia since January this year.

A Muthuraja disappeared in Banting after he came here for a visit in January, claims his wife, M. Usharani. She now says that her life is a living hell.

She said her financier husband had arrived in Malaysia on January 18 after being invited by two lawyer brothers in Banting.

"They told him it was compulsory to come and that he could return to India in a day," The Star quoted Usharani, as adding. That was her last contact with Muthuraja.

"My husband told me that the lawyers had picked him up and he was with them at their family home when I spoke to him," Usharani said in a telephone interview from Chennai, India.

Usharani, 24, said that when she telephoned one of the brothers on January 19 after being unable to contact her husband, she was told they did not know if Muthuraja had even come to Malaysia.

She added that the lawyer brothers, who have been detained over the gruesome murder of businesswoman Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya and three others, had been friends with Muthuraja for ten years.

Usharani, who has a three-year-old daughter, flew to Kuala Lumpur on September 7 and lodged a report on her husband's disappearance at the Banting police station before returning to Chennai on September 9.

Usharani said that when she persisted in calling and demanding to know where Muthuraja was, the brothers and family members told her he had been caught smuggling ketamine and was in police custody.

She said: "I made countless telephone calls and faxed a note to Interpol and the Indian High Commission in Malaysia."

Usharani said the brothers' family told her they could not get involved in her husband's case "because they were from a reputable family."

Usharani said Muthuraja's brother Kasiviswanathan came to Banting four months ago to look for him but the brothers immediately sent him back to Chennai with Muthuraja's luggage.

"They told him that since my husband was involved in a serious drug case, we should lie low," she added.

"I don't want to believe my husband was harmed by his friends. Ten years of friendship must amount to something," she said. (ANI)
