Although it has been proven by a pathologist that the six deaths at FMFA 2014 (Future Music Festival Asia) were actually caused by heatstroke, the police still insist that the usage of drugs contributed to the deaths.
“I don’t think I need to comment further. During the incident, we found that drugs were used,” said the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar as quoted by The Malaysian Insider.
“If the clinical findings say (something else), we accept whatever the finding,” he added. “But the fact still remains that it is caused by drugs.”
According to The Star, UMMC pathologist Prof Dr K. Nadesan had revealed earlier this week that the six people who died at the festival were tested positive for drugs, although the intoxication levels were at low amount.
Therefore, it doesn’t change the fact that there are drugs present in the body of the victims which leads them to become hyperactive and then dehydrated, and lastly, heatstroke.
“From what I read, those who use meth as a stimulant (can have) the energy to dance, jump… that’s why they could dance from 10am until 1am,” he said.
