Sosilawati Lawiya murder case had became a news sensation in Malaysia. I read news about the murder of this Nouvella Visage founder almost everyday. Even during Hari Raya gathering, everyone will stop what they're doing if there are any news about the murder case on TV. Sosilawati, 47, her driver Kamaruddin Shamsudin, 44, lawyer Ahmad Kamil Abdul Karim, 32, and CIMB Bank officer Noorhisham Mohammad, 38, were killed, their bodies burnt and the ashes thrown into rivers in the vicinity of Ladang Gadong after they went missing on Aug 30 following a trip to Banting over a land deal. Until today, Police have picked up eight suspects, among them two lawyers. 300 pieces of bone fragments for at least 20 victims have been retrieved by police in Sg Panchau, Banting.
Mohd Shafiq Abdullah from Kedah and Indian millionaire A. Muthuraja, are two of the victims related to this murder case so far. Muthuraja's wife, S. Usharani, 24, had lodged a report at the Banting police station on Sept 8 claiming that her husband had disappeared after having met the lawyers upon his arrival at the KL International Airport on Jan 18. Selangor police chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said police were now investigating the case of Muthuraja, 34, who had arrived in Malaysia on Jan 18, under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
Today, S. Usharani played a recorded call from her handphone, saying it was evidence that an individual claiming to be from Bukit Aman had asked her for RM1mil to secure her husband’s release. She claimed that she had first received a call from a man called Muru on Feb 2 but did not record the conversation. However, Usharani recorded the next phone call from a man identifying himself as Asst Supt Suresh on Feb 12. They told her that Muthuraja had been detained for trafficking ketamine and asked her for RM1mil for his release. She asked to hear her husband voice before paying but they refused.
On the same day today, Muthuraja family claimed that S.Usharani is a liar. His family also concerned that Muthuraja’s wife S. Usharani was giving the authorities the wrong information. Dr Kasi Viswanathan said the passport that she’s showing the police and the media has expired. There were four expired passports attached to his current one. Muthuraja mother has made it known that her son was not on good terms with his wife S. Usharani. She claimed her son wanted to “escape” from Usharani because she was always putting him under pressure.

With Usharani adding up to the media sensation of this murder case, I think we can see more drama. To anyone who don't read any news about this, Usharani is a second wife of Muthuraja. They're report that she maybe afraid that without her husband, she will not get anything from Muthuraja wealth. I also don't understand why Malaysia newspaper want to add this girl into their news. She only give the recorded phone call after one weeks she arrived in Malaysia. Something twisted in her story somewhere.
Wish this case will be over soon. I also read today that the victim, Sosilawati maybe had been raped before killed by the murderer. I also wish this murderer will be bring to justice real soon.
Wish them Rest in Peace.
