Cops get DNA sample from chair that killed schoolboy
POLICE have obtained the DNA samples of five people in their investigation into the murder of 15-year-old S. Sathiwaran, who was killed after being struck on the head by a chair thrown from the upper floors of a low-cost flat in Pantai Dalam, Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Mazlan Lazim said the five were among 31 flat dwellers whose statements have been recorded since the incident took place on Monday.
“We also obtained a DNA sample from the chair that struck the victim,” said Mazlan.
Sathiwaran died on the spot from head injuries after the chair struck him while he was walking with his mother on the ground floor of the 21-storey block.
Police are now checking information that the chair was left along the corridor on the 21st floor of the block before it was thrown down.

Boy killed by chair is now a murder case, say police
THE culprit who flung a chair from the 21st floor of a low-cost flat in Kuala Lumpur, which killed a schoolboy, is facing a murder rap when caught, police said today.
Kuala Lumpur CID chief Rusdi Mohd Isa said the case, which was initially classified as manslaughter, has been reclassified as murder, with the suspect facing the mandatory death sentence.
Police said identifying the culprit will take time as the forensics units failed to lift any fingerprints from the chair which struck 14-year-old Satishwaran Sathiasilan, killing him instantly while he was with his mother yesterday.
“We did not get any fingerprints from the chair. We are working on other leads to track down the suspect,” Rusdi said.
He added that police have already started questioning the flat dwellers and the investigations will go on indefinitely.
