PETALING JAYA: Four Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leaders have been issued notices to turn up at the Dang Wangi district police station in Kuala Lumpur Tuesday over the Hari Raya open house “incident.”

Their lawyer N. Surendran said the four are Hindraf national information coordinator S. Jayathas; A. Nageswary, the wife of Hindraf national chairman P.Waythamoorthy; coordinator K. Selvam; and national event coordinator R. Kannan.

Surendran said the four were asked to be at the police station at 2.30pm. Their notices were signed by investigating officer ASP Sidney Clyde Jeremiah.

“In the notices, the police stated that they want to record statements from the four on what had happened at the Prime Minister’s Raya open house,” he said when contacted by The Star.

He said the notices stated that investigations would be carried out for two alleged offences.

“The first would be under Section 27(5) of the Police Act for illegal assembly, and the second for alleged trespassing under the Penal Code,” Surendran said.

The notices were issued under Section 111 of the Criminal Procedure Code, he said.

“Failure to comply with the notice would only result in warrants of arrest being issued against them,” he said.

“The four will turn up at the police station as requested by the police,” he added.

On Oct 1, about 160 Hindraf supporters turned up at the Hari Raya open house hosted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Muslim Cabinet ministers.

They presented Abdullah with a teddy bear and a Hari Raya card with a message asking him to release the five Hindraf leaders detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA): M. Manoharan, P. Uthaya­kumar, V. Ganabatirau, R. Kengha­dharan and K. Vasanthakumar.
