Kuganized - a new English word

Kuganized or Kuganised (depending on which type of English you favors) is a new word in English originated from Malaysia after the famous incident involving the death of one Indian named Kugan while in police custody. Kugan's death in 2008 has been a mystery and the Attorney General has ordered the death to be classiffied as murder. Until now, there is no progress made on the police case.
