The late private investigator, Balasubramaniam Perumal’s wife Santamil Selvi and his three children, Kishen, Menaga and Reeshi, filed a suit two years ago, naming Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Najib’s younger brothers, Datuk Ahmad Johari and Datuk Mohd Nazim; lawyer Tan Sri Cecil Abraham and his son, Sunil Abraham; commissioner for oaths Zainal Abidin Muhayat; carpet seller Deepak Jaikishan; and lawyer M. Arunapalam as defendants.
Santamil is suing Deepak over his role with seven others in sending her family into exile to India for five years from 2008.
The suit would expose the roles of several people in sending Santamil’s family into exile following controversies surrounding two statutory declarations by Balasubramaniam involving murdered Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu and Najib.
This included why Balasubramaniam was forced to retract his first sworn statement highlighting Najib’s alleged involvement with Altantuya, and why the family were forced to leave the country.
The case is due for a hearing at the Federal Court later this month. Balasubramaniam died of a heart attack in 2013 at the age of 53.

Altantuya murder: ‘Carpet Deepak’ to take the stand
The Kuala Lumpur High Cout today allowed the application by P Balasubramaniam’s widow A Santamil Selvi to cross-examine carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishian with regards to her suit over her family’s self-imposed five-year exile following the murder of Altantuya Shaariibu.
Deepak who was present in court told reporters outside later that he will take the witness stand on March 2 and hoped “to finally tell the truth which I hope will set me free”.
“I will tell what transpired during that period from the Federal Court matter and now. I will speak the truth,” he said.
Justice Hue Siew Kheng allowed Santamil’s application in chambers after Deepak instructed that his objection to her bid be withdrawn.
“The court then fixed March 2 for Deepak to be cross-examined on the witness stand,” said Santamil’s lawyer, Damian Chan.

Deepak allegedly handed over RM250k to lawyer of PI Bala’s widow
Businessperson Deepak Jaikishan had allegedly handed over RM250,000 in cash to A Santamil Selvi’s lawyer as partial payment of his contribution, following the legal action filed by the widow of private investigator P Balasubramaniam against him and eight others.
Lawyer Americk Sidhu said he received the money at his office on Nov 2.
Americk claimed this in his affidavit in support of Santamil Selvi’s application to strike out Deepak’s second defence statement which was filed on Nov 6, and also to remove senior lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah from representing the carpet businessperson.
The lawyer affirmed the 100-plus pages of the affidavit on Nov 16, and included evidence as exhibits in support of his claim.

Santamil Selvi seeks to remove Shafee as Deepak’s lawyer
The widow of P Balasubramaniam, A Santamil Selvi, has sought to strike out a “second” defence statement filed by Deepak Jaikishan, and also have senior lawyer Muhammad Shafee Abdullah to be removed from representing the carpet businessman at the High Court proceedings in Kuala Lumpur.
Santamil filed both applications on Nov 17 to strike out Deepak’s second defence statement that was filed by Shafee’s firm on Nov 6.
It is understood that Santamil’s lawyer, Americk Sidhu, and Sarawak Report editor Claire Rewcastle Brown have affirmed an affidavit for this purpose.
It was reported on Nov 9 that Deepak gave two conflicting defences on the case, the first given by the carpet businessman himself to Americk on Oct 25, when he had then discharged Shafee. However, this defence given to Americk was not filed in court.
Following his re-appointment of Shafee at the end of October, Deepak, through Shafee’s law firm, filed the “second defence” on Nov 6, which Santamil is now seeking to strike out.
Americk’s firm had sent a letter to presiding High Court judge Hue Siew Kheng, dated Nov 7, citing the discrepancy of the two defence statements, and a copy of Deepak’s defence, which was given on Oct 25, was also attached to the letter given to the court.

Deepak gave two conflicting defences, says lawyer of PI Bala’s widow
A lawyer appearing for the widow of the late private investigator P Balasubramaniam has brought to the attention of the Kuala Lumpur High Court, two conflicting defences given by Deepak Jaikishan, with regards to the woman’s suit against Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, his wife Rosmah Mansor, and seven others.
In the letter dated yesterday given to Justice Hue Siew Kheng by Americk Sidhu, who is representing A Santamil Selvi, the lawyer is seeking to strike out Deepak’s defence in the suit, filed on Monday, via his lawyers Shafee and Co.
In the letter sighted by Malaysiakini, Americk said Deepak had personally delivered his defence to him on Oct 25, while the other one from Shafee was sent on Nov 6.
“Upon perusal of both these statements of defence, we notice that they differ substantially in the material particulars pleaded both in substance and in content,” the letter states.
Americk’s firm presented a copy of the document dated on Oct 25, and an email attachment of the statement of defence to the court.
“We have instructions to apply to strike out the eighth defendant (Deepak) statement of defence dated Nov 6th,” the letter added.

A suit filed in 2014 by the widow of a key witness in the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial, for losses suffered following the family’s five-year exile, is unlikely to be heard any time soon in the High Court.
This is after carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan filed an appeal in the Federal Court to overturn the Court of Appeal ruling which ordered a trial to determine the veracity of A. Santamil Selvi’s claim.
Santamil’s counsel Americk Sidhu told The Malaysian Insider that prominent lawyer Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah would now be handling Deepak’s case.
“Shafee’s legal firm sent me a copy of the application for leave to appeal before the Federal Court,” Americk told The Malaysian Insider.
He said three legal questions have been suggested for leave to appeal the case.
Americk said case management was fixed on February 5 but he would write to the court registry to adjourn the matter as he would be overseas.
In the last hearing before the Court of Appeal, lawyer Wan Azmir Wan Majid from the legal firm Hafarizan Wan & Aisha Mubarak appeared for Deepak.
On December 18 last year, a three-man Court of Appeal bench chaired by Vernon Ong Lam Kiat ruled that Santamil’s RM2 million suit could be filed in her personal capacity.
Santamil, widow of private investigator P. Balasubramaniam, is suing Deepak over his role with seven others in sending her family into exile to India for five years from 2008.
Among the seven are Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
Ong said the allegations of conspiracy in Santamil’s statement of claim had merit.
“The allegations are subject to be proven at the trial in High Court,” Ong said.
Santamil filed the suit on behalf of the estate of Balasubramaniam, who died of a heart attack on March 15, 2013, soon after his return from India.
The suit would expose the roles of several people in sending Santamil’s family into exile following controversies surrounding two statutory declarations by Balasubramaniam involving Altantuya and Najib.
This included why Balasubramaniam was forced to retract his first sworn statement highlighting Najib’s alleged involvement with Altantuya, and why he and his family were forced to leave the country.
High Court judge Datuk Hasnah Mohamed Hashim in December 2014 allowed an application by Najib, Rosmah, the prime minister’s brothers Datuk Johari and Datuk Nazim, senior lawyer Tan Sri Cecil Abraham, his son Sunil Abraham, commissioner for oaths Zainal Abidin Muhayat and lawyer M. Arulampalam to strike out the widow’s suit.
Hasnah said Santamil lacked the capacity to file for action on behalf of her husband’s estate and her pleadings were not according to law.
Both the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court upheld the High Court decision on the grounds that Santamil’s notice of appeal was defective.
However, Deepak was not a respondent in Santamil’s appeal in the Court of Appeal.
Deepak, 42, was back in the limelight last year when he admitted that he helped get Balasubramaniam to repudiate his earlier statutory declaration on the murder, including finding two lawyers to draft a new statement.
He also came out with a 47-page book, “Black Rose 2.0: Black Magic Women”, that discussed rituals used in the country’s administration.
‘Black Rose’ unveiled online in fairytale-style
The Black Rose, a series of books promised by carpet merchant Deepak Jaikishan, chronicling his feud with Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s family, has finally found its way into cyberspace.
Black Rose 1.0, the first of the series, was circulated to the media tonight in the form of a 26-page e-book with its author being listed as ‘Spirit of Altantuya’.
The book makes no mention of any specific personalities by name, but its storyline closely resembles that of Deepak’s own story.
The book contained a slew of characters whose names appear to have been assigned nicknames or have had their real life names jumbled around.
Among them include Kapeed, Bijan, Black Rose, Lala, Popiah, Laba, Jim and several other personalities who he had implicated or referred to during his warpath against Najib’s family.
From Deepak’s account of his relation with Najib’s family to his involvement in reversing private eye P Balasubramaniam’s statutory declaration linking the premier to murdered Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu, the book appears to mirror these accounts but was penned in the form of a fairytale.

Trial to reveal those involved in SD by key witness of Altantuya case
Trial to reveal those involved in SD by key witness of Altantuya case http://bit.ly/1MPcVwB
Personalities involved in the contentious statutory declaration (SD) by the late private investigator P. Balasubramaniam on the murder of Mongolian woman Altantuya Shaariibuu will be revealed soon with the reinstatement of a RM2 million suit against carpet dealer Deepak Jaikishan, said lawyer Americk Sidhu.
Americk, who is appearing for Bala’s widow A. Santamil Selvi, told The Malaysian Insider that the trial, scheduled for early next year, will also reveal the events which led to the forced exile of her family.
Bala, a key witness in the Altantuya murder trial, died of a heart complication in 2013, soon after the family returned from India.
Yesterday, Deepak, who represented himself, told a three-man Court of Appeal bench that he agreed to the claims by Santamil and her three children and conceded to her appeal.
“I did the right thing (in court),” he told reporters later but declined to elaborate.
Americk said there would be no appeal in the Federal Court as Deepak did not contest Santamil’s appeal to restore her suit for conspiracy.
“We will know the sequence of events that took place on the night of July 3 and morning of July 4, 2008, which implicated several people who had significant roles in driving Balasubramaniam and his family away,” Americk told The Malaysian Insider.
In Bala’s first SD on July 3, 2008, he had implicated then deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in Altantuya’s murder.
The next day, he retracted the first SD with a second sworn statement, before he and family left Malaysia.
Deepak was said to have made travel arrangements for the family to leave the country via Singapore.
