KUALA LUMPUR, July 21: A police station chief (OCS) together with three police officers and four women were arrested while partying in a special room at a police station in Kajang during a raid conducted by Bukit Aman yesterday.
According to Berita Harian Online, the raid was led by a team from the Bukit Aman Standards Compliance Integrity Department (JIPS) at about 6pm yesterday, after receiving a tip-off from the public.
During the raid, the group was believed to be dancing away while consuming alcohol and ‘ketum’ drinks in a room on the second floor of the police station headed by the OCS.
The police officers and women arrested, the report added, were dancing and singing karaoke in a dark room affixed with disco lights.
The team arrested an OCS with the rank of Sub-Inspector, two corporals, a support corporal and four women aged between 21 and 37-years-old in the raid.
Police also seized alcohol beverages, loud speakers, disco lights, audio amplification system, recorders, microphones and a television set.
Also confiscated in the operation were five bottles of ‘ketum’ drinks as well as pornographic photos of one of the officers detained with a woman.
Meanwhile, Bukit Aman JIPS director Datuk Azri Ahmad had confirmed the incident, informing that the arrests were made under clear offences committed.
“The actions of the officers, personnel and members of the public involved who were entertaining in a room in the police station with karaoke were found to have violated the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOP).
“The arrests were made by Bukit Aman JIPS officers and members after discovering that the actions had clearly breached the SOPs.
“We will not compromise with any parties if they were found to have flouted the regulations or SOPs that have been issued,” he told Berita Harian Online when contacted today.
Azri pointed out that further investigations are ongoing including actions to be taken according to Section 269 of the Penal Code for possible negligence that may result in the transmission of any infectious disease that could be life-threatening. — DayakDaily
