Surendran talking to the press before going into Bukit Aman.
KUALA LUMPUR: Padang Serai MP N.Surendran said that police cannot afford to have trigger-happy enforcement officers and they should put an end to indiscriminate shooting.
Surendran was speaking to the press outside Bukit Aman where he was to take up a challenge to accompany the police on a raid having accepted IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar's offer on Twitter last Friday
Surendran said "They keep saying they're shooting criminals but actually they're shooting suspects. PDRM are not judges and they should try their best to arrest without resorting to violence."
When asked if he was afraid of getting involved in a shootout, he said he is not.
"I'm not scared, I'm more concerned for the public. This is a risk faced by everyone," he said.
Surendran then went in to have his body armour fitted, but members of the press were not allowed in. Even lawyers accompanying him were not allowed to bring in their phones and laptops.
Surendran said the legal details of his "adventure" will be handled by Subang MP Sivarasa Rasaiah while the one handling from PDRM is Bukit Aman Deputy CID Chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor.
