    KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysian court on Wednesday found the country’s police chief liable for the 2009 death in custody of a young ethnic Indian. The family of the deceased, Ananthan Kugan, sued Inspector General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar, who was a state-level police chief at the time of the death, accusing him of a cover-up. Kugan, 22 at the time, died at a police station near the capital Kuala Lumpur after being detained on suspicion of auto theft, sparking an uproar among minority ethnic Indians and activists who allege frequent police corruption and abuse.
