Lahad Datu police chief also investigated over his daughter’s death

PAPAR, April 21 — Police are still conducting investigations into the death of Lahad Datu district police chief ACP Dzulbaharin Ismail’s daughter.

Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Jauteh Dikun said further investigations also involved the district police chief himself.

“An investigation is being conducted on him because he is the one who owns the gun,” he told the press after attending the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration of the Papar Parliamentary constituency and Kawang state constituency today.

Jauteh said the investigation has also not yet drawn any conclusions as to whether the case is related to negligence or otherwise.

“That is something we have not been able to make a decision on. We have not made a final decision yet until there is a full report on the results of the investigation,” he said.

The police have not yet decided whether the district police chief will be suspended because the investigation is still ongoing.

On April 17, Bernama reported that the cause of death of Dzulbaharin’s 14-year-old daughter, who was found covered in blood in a room at her home in Taman Tabanak, Lahad Datu on April 16, was due to a gunshot to the right chest.

Sabah deputy police commissioner DCP Datuk Shahurinain Jais said the autopsy conducted at Lahad Datu Hospital found that there was only one gunshot wound on the victim’s body.
